Flashcards in 7. Cellular Respiration Deck (10):
Hydrolysis of a phosphorylated organic molecule + the addition of a phosphate group to ADP --> forms ATP
Chemical energy of organic molecules transferred to electron carriers, transports electrons released to the respiratory e transport chain to final e acceptor (oxygen if aerobic)
molecule loses electron
molecule gains electron
more chemical energy than oxidised form
Cellular respiration in Bacteria
Takes place in cytoplasm and plasma membrane
can only passed from molecules with higher to lower Potential Energies
Glucose is partially broken down to make pyruvate and energy is transferred to ATP and reduced electron carriers
Takes place in Cytoplasm
Pyruvate is oxidised to acetyl-coA, producing reduced electron carriers and releasing CO2.
Takes place in Mitochondria
Where is H+ conc. the highest in e- transport chain?
