Key Concepts 9 1. Where is the energy in a molecule of glucose? 2. Cells access this energy in a tightly controlled set of reactions that first transfer some of the bond energy to ATP and an electron carrier called NADH, in a process called glycolysis. What is left of the 6-carbon glucose molecules are two 3-carbon molecules of . .. 3. If O 2 and the proper enzymes are present, the pyruvate can be completely oxidized in the citric acid cycle. What does this (oxidized) mean, and where does it take place in eukaryotes and prokaryotes? 4. What are the products of the citric acid cycle? What happens to each of them during oxidative phosphorylation (= the respiratory chain = the electron transport chain)? Is any ATP synthesized, and if so, how? 5. Approximately how many high-energy ATP molecules are synthesized per molecule of glucose in glycolysis followed by cellular respiration, and at which stages? 6.
