1
Q

What is the function of the the Citric Acid cycle?

A

Acts as the common metabolic process for all fuel molecules

2
Q

Where does the citric acid cycle occur?

A

Mitochondrial matrix

3
Q

How is ATP formed form the Citric acid cycle?

A

Electrons are passed onto NADH and FADH2

4
Q

What is the final stage of respiration?

A

The electron transport chain

5
Q

What does ubiquinone become when electrons are passed to it?

A

Ubiquinol

6
Q

What does NADH-Q oxidoreductase reduce?

A

NADH

7
Q

What happens in stage 3 of the electron transport chain?

A

Electrons are passed from ubiquinol to cytochrome c

8
Q

ADP uses released energy to make ATP using what mechanism?

A

Binding change mechanism

9
Q

Where are protons produced in the electron transport chain pumped to?

A

The intermembraneous space of the mitochondria

10
Q

When can ATP synthesis become uncoupled from the ETC?

A

When the inner mitochondrial membrane becomes permeable to protons

11
Q

What is the name given to when protons move into the intermembraneous space?

A

Chemiosmosis

12
Q

What is the name of complex 1 of the electron transport chain?

A

NADH-Q oxidoreductase

13
Q

What is the name of complex 3 of the electron transport chain?

A

Q-cytochrome c oxidoreductase

14
Q

What is the name of complex 2 of the electron transport chain?

A

Succinate-Q reductase

15
Q

What is the name of complex 4 of the electron transport chain?

A

Cytochrome c oxidase

16
Q

What provides the energy to power the ATP synthase molecule?

A

The protein gradient created by the production of the water molecule
