Complete oxidation of pyruvate happens in
What is rate limiting step in CHO oxidation ?
Oxidation of pyruvate
In oxidation of pyruvate, pyruvate becomes -----with the help of pyruvate dehydrogenase
Rate of citric acid cycle reduced if
What is oxidative phosphorylation ?
The coupling of the electron transport chain to ATP synthesis via the proton gradient and ATP synthase
Uses energy released by oxidation of nutrients to generate ATP
Oxidative phosphorylation uses energy released by oxidation of nutrients to generate ATP
Oxidative phosphorylation is carried out by series of
Protein complexes in the mitochondria
"Chain " in electron transport chain are
Oxygen is involved in > 90% of all ATP produced
Where does ETC occur
% volume of cell occupied by mitochondria parallels need for
Oxidative phosphorylation in the cell
Exercise training can increase mitochondrial volume up to 2 folds
Each ml of mitochondrial volume used up to how much O2 per minute
3-5 ml O2/ min
How many lipid complex on mitochondrial inner membrane ?
4 protein lipid complex
What are the functions of protein lipid complexses
Transfer electron to oxygen
