Aerobic Cellular Respiration: ATP generation summary 36-38 ATP yield from the complete breakdown of 1 glucose molecule Glycolysis Formation of Acetyl Coenzyme A : 2 NADH Krebs Cycle 2 So far: 2 Electron Transport Chain : yields 2 the 2 FDH 2 , or 34 ATP 34 ATP from electron transport, added to the 4 ATPs produced previously yields a total of 38 ATP from aerobic respiration however, the 2 NADH from glycolysis were produced in the cytoplasm. These NADH molecules cannot enter the mitochondrion, but transfer their electrons to shuttle molecules, which then transfer the electrons to NAD + or FAD molecules inside the mitochondrion. Most cell types use the glycerol phosphate shuttle, which transfers its electrons to FAD to form FADH 2 & only yields 2 ATP per NADH;
