Coupled reactions are defined as reactions that are liked together, with the liberation By definition an endergonic raction is a chemical reaction that requires energy to be added Enzymes are catalysts that increase the rate of reactions by lowering the energy of activation The most important high-energy phosphate compound in the muscle cell is ATP The simplest and most rapid method to produce ATP during exercise is through ATP-PC system The principal function of glycolysis is to degrade glucose or glycogen into pyruvic acid or lactic acid and produce ATP. The two most important hydrogen (electron) carriers in biogenergetic chemical reactions are NAD and

Unformatted text preview: FAD The primary function of the Krebs cycle is to complete the oxidation of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins (i.e. form NADH and FADH) Aerobic production of ATP occurs in the mitochondria (i.e. electron transport chain) in a process called oxidative phosphorylation Each pair of electrons passed through the electron transport chain from NADH to oxygen releases enough energy to form 2.5 ATP The total ATP production via aerobic breakdown of glucose is 32 ATP The breakdown of creatine phosphate is regulated by ADP concentration in the cytoplasm. The most important rate limiting enzyme in glycolysis is phosphofructokinase....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
