Flashcards in Chapter 7: Cellular Respiration, Part 2 Deck (4):
1

the eight reactions of the citric acid cycle (tricarboxylic acid cycle oxidize acetyl groups completely to CO2, generate 3 NADH and 1 FADH2, and synthesize 1 ATP by substrate-level phosphorylation

tricarboxylic acid cycle or Krebs cycle

2

series of electron carriers that alternately pick up and release electronsm and ultimately transfer them to their final acceptor, oxygen

mitochondrial electron transfer system (ETS)

3

proteins with a heme prosthetic group that contains an iron atom that accepts and donates electrons

cytochromes

4

-stored energy produced by proton and voltage gradient
-energy is used for ATP synthesis and cotransport of substances to and from mitochondria

proton-motive force
