Purpose of Cellular Respiration is to create ATP for energy ATP is formed from ADP + PO 4 Energy is stored in the bonds b/w phosphate groups Aerobic Glycolysis, Oxidation of pyruvate, Krebs Cycle, ETC-(presented by different group) C 6 H 12 O 6 aka sugar or monosaccharide Glycolysis o Purpose is to change sugar into pyruvate o C 6 H 12 O 6 → C 3 H 3 O 3 - which our bodies can use to make more NADH and

Unformatted text preview: FADH 2 o Some ATP is formed at this stage but not the main point o C 6 H 12 O 6 + 2[ATP] + 2[NAD] + + 2[ADP] + 2[PO 4 ] → 2[C 3 H 3 O 3-] + 2[NADH] + 2H + + 4[ATP] + 2H 2 O o So for every glucose molecule, 2 NADH + 2 ATP + 2 pyruvate is formed o Initially, ATP is added to the sugar molecule to prepare it into a •...
