What enzyme in the respiratory pathway helps control the pace of cellular respiration? Name the mechanism by which this regulation is made possible. Phosphofructokinase; Feedback inhibition B. Name the compounds that stimulate and inhibit it. AMP stimulates; ATP and citrate inhibit C. Why is it important to control cellular respiration? Prevents the cell from wasting energy and it spares valuable organic molecules for other functions when the concentration of ATP is high. 12) Label the Chloroplast and answer the questions that follow: In which membrane do Photosystem II and Photosystem I, important in photosynthesis, accumulate? Thylakoid membrane Where within the chloroplast does the Calvin Cycle of photosynthesis occur? Stroma Where in the plant chloroplast might you find a high concentration of H+ during photosynthesis?
