Phases of Complete Glucose Breakdown Cellular respiration involves a metabolic pathway of enzymes assisted by coenzymes . The two coenzymes involved in cellular respiration, NAD + and FAD + , receive the hydrogen atoms removed from glucose.

Phases of Complete Glucose Breakdown (cont.) The complete oxidation of glucose involves four phases. Glycolysis , the splitting of glucose into two 3-carbon molecules The preparatory reaction , which divides each 3- carbon molecules into a 2-carbon molecule and CO 2 – The citric acid cycle , which produces CO 2 , NADH, FADH 2 , and ATP The electron transport chain , which assists in the production of the largest amount of ATP
