METABOLIZE! (TUNE:“I WILL SURVIVE”) link to URL with music METABOLIZE (Tune: "I Will Survive") Two pyruvates are made from glycolysis: Glucose gains phosphate from ATP hydrolysis Then it's isomerized, and then turned into fructose bisphosphate Which then relates To two 3C carbohydrates Each gains phosphate (with phosphorylase), They're oxidized by NAD+ (with a dehydrogenase) And in the last three steps they're made into pyruvate, finally, And there's a net gain of two molecules of lovely ATP… It's aerobic respiration (Not as efficient - but more controlled than combustion) It's got to get all twelve hydrogens oxidized, To turn six carbons into six carbon dioxides; To oxidize! Metabolize! Oh it starts off in the cytosol, where sugar's glycolyzed The TCA cycle goes on

Unformatted text preview: In a mitochondrion Metabolize - metabolize!! (musical bit) Pyruvate loses CO2 (forms NADH) Its ethanoyl group forms acetyl coenzyme A 4C oxaloacetate joins on to make 6C citrate, Eight steps go round; And two more CO2 are found; One ATP each cycle gains, Reduced coenzymes make more in the electron transport chain: Four from two FADH2, ten NADH - each yields three: From one glucose that's 38 ATP It's aerobic respiration (Not as efficient - but more controlled than combustion) It's got to get all twelve hydrogens oxidized, To turn six carbons into six carbon dioxides; To oxidize! Metabolize! Oh it starts off in the cytosol, where sugar's glycolyzed The TCA cycle goes on In a mitochondrion Metabolize - metabolize.!!!...
