Unformatted text preview: aerobic: C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 b 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O (+ 38 ATP ) anaerobic: Glucose b 2 lactate + 2 ATP b aerobic, ~19x more efficient Summary: ATP production 2 ATP Efficiency of Aerobic metabolism C 6 H 12 O 6 + 38Pi + 38ADP +6O 2 bb 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + 38ATP h G = -686kcal/mol of glucose h Heat E = -420 kcal/mol h Net E for ATP synthesis: 266 kcal/mol 1 mole of ATP: 7 kcal ( 266/38) Efficiency: if all E glucose converted to ATP, 686/7 = 98 ATP but only 38 ATP produced. so efficiency is ~40% (38/98 ATP) Comparative properties of ATP production mechanisms * Phosphogens * Anaerobic metabolism has advantages too!
