Flashcards in 5.2 Respiration Deck (12):
1

What does respiration produce?

ATP

2

What is Glycolysis?

The first stage of anaerobic and aerobic respiration. It occurs in the cytoplasm and id an anaerobic process.

3

What is the first step of glycolysis?

Glucose + ATP -> Glucose Phosphate +ADP

4

What is the second step of glycolysis?

Glucose Phosphate + ATP -> Glucose Bisphosphate + ADP

5

What is the third step of glycolysis?

Glucose Bisphosphate + H2O -> 2 Triose Phosphate

6

What is the fourth and final step of glycolysis?

2 Triose Phosphate + 4 ADP + 2 NAD+ ->

2 Pyruvate + 4ATP + 2NADH

7

What occurs when 2 Triose Phosphate is converted into 2 Pyruvate?

Oxidation

8

What does anaerobic mean?

Lack of Oxygen

9

What occurs when respiration is only anaerobic?

Pyruvate + NAD -> Ethanol + NADH (plants)
Lactic Acid + NADH (animals)

10

Where does Glycolysis occur?

In the Cytoplasm

11

Where does Aerobic Respiration occur?

Mitochondrial Matrix

12

How does Pyruvate enter the mitochondrial matrix?

By Active Transport.
