Biology 100 Cellular Respiration Worksheet Name: George Fountain Team Name: Golden Retrievers _________________________________________________ Section:__7______ 1. Why is ATP so important to cells? It serves as the primary energy source for the cell. 2. What is phosphorylation? Phosphorylation is the addition of a phosphate group to a molecule. 3. What is a “redox” reaction? A redox reaction is any chemical reaction that involves the transfer of one or more electrons from one reactant to another. 4. What is oxidation? Oxidation is loss of electrons in a redox reaction. 5. What is reduction? Reduction is the gain of electrons in a redox reaction. 6. What are the 4 main steps in cellular respiration? 1.

Unformatted text preview: 7. What molecule enters glycolysis? Glucose molecule 8. Where in the cell does glycolysis occur? It occurs in the cytosol of the cell. 9. What are the products of glycolysis? The products of glycolysis are pyruvate, ATP, and NADH. 10. What type of molecule is NAD + ? What is its purpose? NADH+ is an oxidated electron carrier. The addition of two electrons and a proton to NAD+ produces NADH. 11. What molecule enters the Krebs cycle? Acetyl CoA molecule 12. Where in the cell does the Krebs cycle occur? In the inner matrix of the mitochondria 13. What are the products of the Krebs cycle? ATP, CO2, NADH, and FADH2 14. Fill in the blanks: When both glycolysis and the Krebs cycle are completed, glucose has been completely oxidized__ to ATP __ ....
