Unformatted text preview: lactic acid Creating an oxygen debt – process will wave to reverse when there’s oxygen available • Oxygen dependent (mitochondria) – aerobic pathway o Electron transport (cytochrome) system Gradient energy release system to transfer energy from NADH to ATPs Each NADH has energy to yield 3 ATPs So, ATPs now 8 (2 substrate phosphoryanon and 6 from 2 NADHs in glycolysis) Oxygen is final acceptor of electrons Electron transport • Energy or NADH e- is used to transport proteins (H+) into mitochondrial compartment • Separation of charges = potential energy o Pyruvic acid aerobic pathway Make ready step • C-C-C (NADH) C-C + CO2 (up) : remember there are 2 of these molecules • NADH E-T system 3 ATPs (happens twice = 6 ATPs, net gain of ATP is now 12) Kreb’s citric acid cycle • Global warming: causes...
