BI 107 Cellular Respiration Self Quiz Aerobic cellular respiration is the process whereby ________ molecules are broken down in order to reform/recyle __________ . This “aerobic” process requires _________. The first of the four phases of aerobic respiration occurs in the ________ of the cell and occurs when oxygen is present/not present/either present or not present. During this first phase, the glucose molecule is broken down into _____ (how many?) 3 carbon molecules that are called ____________. For this process to occur, the cell uses 2 of its own ______ to “prime” the glucose, which means that the glucose is destabilized and therefore easier to split in half. The cell also adds ____ (how many?) inorganic phosphate groups to the glucose. After all these phosphates are removed, the total yield of ATP is ______ but the net yield is ______ ATP. Also, _______ (how many?) NADH are formed from one glucose. The second phase of aerobic respiration occurs when the pyruvate moves into the ___________
