1) What are the products for: a) Glycolysis of ONE molecule of glucose 2 pyruvate, 2NADH, 2H + , 2ATP, 2 H 2 O b) Bridging step for ONE molecule of pyruvate 1CO 2 , 1NADH, 1H + c) ONE molecule of acetyl-CoA entering the TCA 2CO 2 , 1FADH 2 , 3NADH, 3H + , 1GTP d) ONE molecule of glucose after complete oxidation 6CO 2 , 10NADH, 10H + , 2FADH 2 , 4ATP (2GTP + 2ATP) e) A 6-carbon saturated fatty acid Activation: -2ATP (note: we need the equivalent of 2 ATP for activation, because Pyrophosphate is released and it takes 2 ATP to regenerate ATP from AMP)

Unformatted text preview: 2 -oxidations: 2NADH, 2H + , 2FADH 2 3 acetyl CoA: 6CO 2 , 3FADH 2 , 9NADH, 9H + , 3GTP(=3ATP) TOTAL: 6CO 2 , 11NADH, 11H + , 5FADH 2 , 1ATP, What is the difference in Energy between the oxidation of glucose and a 6-carbon fatty acid? 1NADH more for 6C-fatty acid = 2.5 ATP 3FADH 2 more for 6C-fatty acid = 4.5ATP 8ATP (fatty acid) -4 ATP (glucose)= 4ATP more for fatty acid with same number of carbons as glucosethe fatty acids win!!...
