Presentation Transcript
  • Forms of energy include chemical, radiant (heat and light), mechanical and electrical
  • Chemical energy is contained in the chemical bonds of molecules
  • Radiant energy travels in waves (ex: visible light)
  • Energy can be transferred from one form to another
  • Law of Thermodynamics
    • Energy cannot be created or destroyed - can be converted from one form to another
    • Usable energy is lost during transformations
  • Composed of adenine base, ribose sugar, and 3 phosphate groups (PO4)
  • Phosphorylation – the addition of a phosphate group
  • Substrate-level phosphorylation– enzymes help break and down and convert those high energy PO4 bonds
  • When the bond is broken it releases energy, a phosphate group and ADP
enzymes in metabolic pathways
Enzymes in Metabolic Pathways!


  • Biological catalysts
  • Speeds up chemical reactions
  • Weakens existing bonds in substrates which lowers the amount of activation energy needed
  • NADH – a second energy carrying molecule in mitochondria and produces 3 ATP
  • FADH2– a third energy carrying molecule in the mitochondria and produces 2 ATP
  • Has a smooth, outer membrane and a folded inner membrane
  • Cristae – folds of inner membrane – electron transport chain occurs here
  • Matrix – space inside cristae and contains DNA and ribosomes – Krebs cycle takes place here
  • Site of aerobic respiration
cellular respiration overview
Cellular Respiration Overview!
  • C6H12O6 + 6O2 6CO2 + 6H2O (heat and ATP)
  • Controlled release of energy from organic molecules
  • Glucose is oxidized (loses e-) and oxygen is reduced (gains e-)
  • Carbon atoms of glucose is released as CO2
  • One glucose molecule generates 36 ATP
  • 3 steps
    • Glycolysis
    • Kreb’s Cycle
    • Electron Transport Chain (ETC)

Glucose rhymes with lumos!

  • Occurs in cytoplasm
  • Summary of steps
    • 2 ATP added to glucose (6C) to energize it
    • Glucose splits into two PGAL (3C)
    • H+ and e- is removed from each PGAL and given to make 2 NADH
    • NADH – energy and electron carrier
    • Each PGAL is rearranged into pyruvate (3C) with energy and transferred to make 4 ATP
    • Creates 4 ATP but glycolysis requires 2 ATP so the net product is 2 ATP
    • If oxygen is available then the pyruvate will move to the mitochondria and being aerobic respiration
glycolysis cont
Glycolysis (cont.)
    • If no oxygen is available (anaerobic) the pyruvate will be fermented by the addition of 2 H from the NADH, which changes it to NAD+ and keeps glycolysis going
  • Net yield of Glycolysis
    • 4 NADH2
    • 2 CO2
    • 2 ATP
kreb s cycle
Kreb’s Cycle!
  • AKA Citric Acid cycle
  • Requires 2 cycles to metabolize glucose
  • Acetyl Co-A (2C) enters the Kreb’s cycle and combines with oxaloacetic acid (4C) to make citric acid (6C)
  • Citric acid is oxidized releasing CO2, free H+, and e- forming ketoglutaric acid (5C)
  • Free e- reduce NAD+ to NADH2 and FAD+ to FADH2
  • Ketoglutaric acid is also oxidized releasing more CO2, free H+, and e-
kreb s cycle cont
Kreb’s Cycle (cont.)
  • The cycle continues oxidizing the carbon compounds producing more CO2, NADH2, FADH2, and ATP
  • H2O is added to supply more H+
  • CO2 is a waste product and leaves the cell
  • Oxaloacetic acid is regenerated to start the cycle again
  • NADH2 and FADH2 migrate to the ETC
  • Net yield from Kreb’s Cycle (2 turns)
    • 6 NADH2
    • 2 FADH2
    • 4 CO2
    • 2 ATP
electron transport chain
Electron Transport Chain!
  • Found in the cristae
  • Contains 4 protein-based complexes that works in sequence moving H+ from the matrix across the inner membrane (proton pumps)
  • A concentration gradient of H+ between the inner and outer membrane occurs
  • H+ concentration gradient causes the synthesis of ATP by chemiosmosis
  • Energized e- and H+ from 10 NADH2 and 2 FADH2 are transferred to O2 to produce H2O
