Aerobic respiration requires O2, whereas anaerobic pathways, which include anaerobic respiration and fermentation, do not require O2 A . Ce ll u l ar Re s p i ra ti on plants convert CO 2 into organic compounds, & animals, plants and fungi convert organic compounds back into CO 2 the catabolic processes that convert the energy stored in ATP then occur inside cells 2 types: aerobic & anaerobic respiration B. A erob i c Re s p i ra ti on- During aerobic respiration, nutrients are catabolized to carbon dioxide and water. Most cells use aerobic respiration to obtain energy from glucose Glucose + O 2 CO 2 + H 2 O + Energy C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 + 6 H 2 O 6 CO 2 + 12 H 2 O + energy (3638 ATP) (172 pg) Involved redox reactions since glucose is oxidized & oxygen is reduced the cell can obtain the most energy from NADH-During this process, the free energy of the electrons is coupled to ATP synthesis-The chemical reactions of the aerobic respiration of glucose are grouped into four stages-------Glycolysis, the first stage of aerobic respiration occurs in the cytosol, 2> Pyruvate, the product of glycolysis, enters a mitochondrion, where cellular respiration continues with the formation of acetyl CoA, 3> the citric acid cycle and 4> electrons transport and chemiosmosis. Most ATP is synthesized by the chemiiosmosis ============Most reactions involved in aerobic respiration are one of three types : dehydrogenations, decarboxlations, and those prepation rxnx. Dehydrgenations : are reactions in which two hydrogen atoms are removed from the substrate and transferred to NAD+ or FAD. Decarboxylations: are reactions in which part of a carboxyl group (- COOH) is removed from the substrate as a molecule of CO2.the rest of the rxn are preparation reactions in which molecules undergo rearrangements and other changes so that. G l yco l y s i s- refers to the fact that the sugar glucose is metabolized.doesnt require oxygen and proceeds under aerobic or anaerobic conditions Pyruvate: a three carbon molecule. Some of the energy in the glucose is captured, there is a net yield of two ATP molecules and two NADH molecules. The reaction of glycolysis take place in the cytosol, where the necessary reactants, such as ADP, NADP+ and inorganic phosphate, float freely and are used as needed....
