Flashcards in Respiration Deck (11):
1

What’s the equation for aerobic respiration

Glucose + oxygen —> carbon dioxide + water

2

Why is ATP a good store of energy

1) released in small manageable amounts
2) quick release of energy
3) simple singe, reversible reaction
4) soluble

3

What are the 4 stages of respiration

Glycolysis
Link reaction
Krebs cycle
Oxidative phosphorylation/ ETC

4

What is the location and function of glycolysis

Inside the cytoplasm and to produce pyruvate from glucose so it can enter the mitochondria

5

What are the reactants and products of glycolysis

Reactants:
Glucose, ATP, NAD, ADP+Pi

Products:
Pyruvate, reduced NAD, ATP

6

What is the location and function of the link reaction

Inside the mitochondrial matrix and to produce acetal coenzyme A which can enter the Krebs cycle, and to produce reduced NAD

7

What are the reactants and products of the link reaction

Reactants:
Pyruvate, coenzyme A, NAD

Products:
Acetyl CoA, reduced NAD, CO2

8

What is the location and function of the Krebs cycle

Inside the mitochondrial matrix, and to produce ATP and reduced NAD, in substrate level phosphorylation

9

What is the definition of substrate level phosphorylation

Direct transfer of Pi to ADP from intermediates to form ATP

10

What are the reactants and products of the Krebs cycle

Reactants:
Acetyl CoA, NAD, FAD, ADP+Pi

Products:
ATP, reduced NAD & FAD, CO2, Coenzyme A which is recycled to the link reaction

11

What is the location and function of the electron transport chain

Inside the inner mitochondrial membrane and is to release lots of ATP and regenerate NAD and FAD
