Photosynthesis Aerobic Respiration Type of metabolic reaction Anabolism Catabolism Raw materials CO 2 , H 2 O C 6 H 12 O 6 , O 2 End products C 6 H 12 O 6, O 2 CO 2 , H 2 O Which cells have these processes? Cells that contain chlorophyll (certain cells of plants, algae, and some bacteria) Every actively metabolizing cell has aerobic respiration or some other energy- releasing pathway Sites involved (in eukaryotic cells) Chloroplasts Cytosol (glycolysis); mitochondria ATP production By photophosphorylation (a chemiosmotic process) By substrate-level phosphorylation and by oxidative phosphorylation (a chemiosmotic process)

Unformatted text preview: Principal electron transfer compound NADP + is reduced to form NADPH + NAD + is reduced to form NADH + Location of electron transport chain Thylakoid membrane Mitochondrial inner membrane (cristae) Source of electrons for electron transport chain In noncyclic electron transport: H 2 O (undergoes photolysis to yield electrons, protons, and oxygen) Immediate source: NADH, FADH 2 Ultimate source: glucose or other carbohydrate Terminal electron acceptor for electron transport chain In noncyclic electron transport: NADP + (becomes reduced to form NADPH) O 2 (becomes reduced to form H 2 O)...
