A line of mutated yeast cells, called Wee mutants, has no mitochondria. Their name comes from the fact that these cells are very small compared to other yeast cells. Which energy-harvesting processes can Wee mutants perform?
glycolysis and fermentation
At the end of glycolysis, the original carbons of the glucose molecule form:
two molecules of pyruvate.
How many of the carbons originally present in glucose continue to other reactions after glycolysis?
Six carbons are left in pyruvate molecules.
Where are the low-energy electrons located after the electron transport chain is completed?
They are located in the bonds of H2O.
Which of the following occurs immediately after a cell runs out of oxygen?
The electron transport chain stops.
During cellular respiration, the pyruvate produced in glycolysis is:
the source of electrons for NADH and FADH2.
The metabolic breakdown of one molecule of glucose generates the greatest amount of energy during:
