Unformatted text preview: ). Hexokinase is inhibited by glucose-6-phosphapte. 3. In the Kreb’s cycle, which requires oxygen, pyruvate moves from the cytoplasm into the mitochondria and converts to acetyl coA. The primary purpose of the Kreb’s cycle is to create high-energy electron carriers NADH and FADH2. Here, carbon dioxide is removed as a waste product(when we exhale). 4. The mitochondrial membrane is important because it is wehre oxidative phosphorylation takes place. Porins, which are channel proteins, allow free movement of ions into the intermembrane space. The five specific integral membrane proteins involved in ATP synthesis in the inner membrane include NADH dehydrogenase, succinate dehydrogenase, cytochrome c reductase, cytochrome c oxidase, and ATP synthase....
