Cell Respiration Tuesday, February 10, 2009 12:25 AM 1. Once sugars are made might use for building blocks (glucose or cellulose) or for energy source 2. Cell Respiration o Point is to break down into something that can be used (ATP) 3. Evergy from Glucose to ATP o Oxygen Independent (outside mitochondria) Glycolysis (takes place in cytoplasm) Glucose in cytoplasm 6 C molecule glucose. Be aware of Carbons C 6 H 12 O 6 C-C-C-C-C-C Transfer of energy becomes ATP not the atoms in glucose Phosphate is given up and ATP is made to ADP Reaction replaces some hydrogens. Each phosphate added to one 3-C replaces hydrogens These H (and much energy) are picked up by the carrier molecule NADPH reducing it to form NADH. (X2) Pyruvic acid anaerobic pathway o Oxygen dependent (Mitochondria) Electron transport (Cytochrome system) o Pyruvic acid aerobic pathway Makes ready step Krebs citric acid cycle 4. At end of Glycolysis o 2 molecules of Pyruvic acid Can yield ATPs only in presence of oxygen o 2 molecules of NADH Can yield ATP's only in presence of oxygen
