Flashcards in Energy Generation in Cell Deck (12):
1

What is beta oxidation

Acetyl CoA being formed from fatty acids

2

Which phosphate breaking gives the energy

3rd phosphate

3

What are the 2 stages of glycolysis

Priming
Splitting

4

What are the end product (net) of glycolysis

2x Pyruvate (3C)
2 ATP
2 NADH

5

What do people experience when they are exercising skeletal muscle

Increase lactate = muscle pain

6

Why does atherosclerosis cause chest pain

Coronary arteries blocked
Insufficient O2 supply to heart
Increase lactate

7

What is the cori cycle

Lactate converted to glucose in liver

8

Why does the TCA cycle require oxygen when it doesnt use it in the cycle

For regeneration of NAD + FAD

9

What is redox potential

Tendency for electron donor to reduce an electron acceptor
If more (-), greater tendency to donate electron

10

What drives electron transport chain

NADH and FADH2

11

What does Pyruvate dehydrogenase do

Remove a carbon from pyruvate to produce acety CoA

12

What does acetyl CoA become in TCA cycle

2x Carbon dioxide
