3/31/11 ATP-citrate lyase In the cytoplasm citrate that has been exported from the mitochondria can be converted to Acetyl-CoA by the enzyme atp-citrate lyase Atp+citrate +Coa +yields adp +pi +oxoloaceteate+acetyl coa Malic Enzyme-uses NADP+ to yield NADPH The glyocylate cycle Plants and some bacteria can do this. Animals cannot Use to acetyl coa to make oxaloacetate and gluconeogensis- for growing and intermediate for making the woody parts of plants Electron Transport and oxidative phosphorylation ADP + Pi yields ATP H=H^+ + e^- Come out of the citric acid with reduced NADH About 3.6 million years go to almost 2 years ago the world was anaerobic Redox Potentials Many reactions of catabolic pathways involve oxidations of substrates

Unformatted text preview: Redox potential- the more positive the stand reduction potential the greater the frequency for the redox couples oxidized form to accept elections and become reduced.-Spontaneous delta E= spontaneous reaction (just the opposite as delta G) Nernst Equation • E=electron potential • F=faraday constant • The ratios are not enormous, that means we can get a fair idea of what’s going on without knowing the other variables. Look at table 15-1 Oxidative phosphorylation In mitochondria In cytoplasm Take electrons on NADH and combine it with oxygen to make water Complex 1 Function NADH is a 2 electron carrier...

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
