Unformatted text preview: Citric acid cycle- oxidizes a derivative of pyruvate to CO2 Oxidative phosphorylation- powered by redox reactions of electron transport chain Substrate-level phosphorylation- enzyme transfers a phosphate group from a susbtrate molecule to ADP, rather than adding an inorganic phosphate to ADP as in oxidative phosphorylation 1 Glucose- about 38 molecules of ATP, each with 7.3 kcal/mol of free energy Glycolysis- net 2 ATP, 2 NADH, 2 Pyruvate, 2 H2O, 2 H+ Fermentation transfers electrons from NADH to pyruvate, restocking NAD+ Alcohol fermentation= pyruvate is converted to ethanol in 2 steps...
