Biology 201: Cellular Biology and Genetics Fall 2004, Study Guide: Chapter 9 1. Give a broad definition of cellular respiration. 2. What types of macromolecules are the substrates of cellular respiration? 3. What is an oxidation/reduction reaction, and how can you tell from the chemical reaction equation if one is occurring? 4. Why is cellular respiration broken down into multiple steps? 5. How are electrons transferred from carbon to oxygen in cellular respiration? 6. Describe the three major stages of cellular respiration in terms of their location in the cell and their substrates and products. 7. Differentiate between substrate level and oxidative phosphorylation. 8. What types of “high energy” compounds are produced during glycolysis, and at what levels? 9. When is the CO2 released from substrates during cellular respiration? 10. Explain why the Krebs cycle is a cycle. 11. How does carbon enter the Krebs cycle? 12. What types of “high energy” molecules are produced by the Krebs cycle and at what
