In the Krebs cycle, which requires oxygen, pyruvate moves from the cytoplasm into the mitochondria and converts to acetyl coA. The primary purpose of the Krebs 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.
