STUDY
PLAY
photosynthesis
process in which light energy from the sun is captured and stored in the form of organic molecules (sugars)
cellular respiration
process occuring in ALL living things where the energy in sugar is converted to energy in ATP
Autotroph
makes its own food
heterotroph
relies on outer food source (does not make its own food)
carbon dioxide fixation
process by which carbon dioxide is converted to organic molecules (sugars)
NADH, NADPH, FADH
electron carriers
glycolysis
glucose is converted to pyruvate, 2 ATP and NADH generated
Kreb's Cycle
the goal of this is to create electron carriers, makes 2 ATP
Electron Transport Chain
electrons from an electron carrier (NADH, NADPH, FADH) pass from one protein to another. Lost energy from e- used to power active transport H+ across mitochondrial membrane
