Anaerobic Respiration, Metabolism Evolution cellular respiration of protein - 1st broken down into amino acids deamination - process that removes the amino group reactions convert remaining carbon chain into parts that take place in glycolysis/Krebs cycle alanine converted to pyruvate glutamate converted into a-ketoglutarate aspartate converted into oxaloacetate cellular respiration of fat - 1st broken down into fatty acids and glycerol beta oxidation - process that removes 2-carbon acetyl groups from fatty acids to convert them into acetyl groups o takes place in mitochondrial matrix o each acetyl group combines w/ coenzyme A to form acetyl-CoA produces 20% more ATP than glucose per 6-carbon molecule contains 2x as much kilocalories per gram fermentation - process that recycles NAD+ in absence of oxygen uses organic compound as electron acceptor instead of oxygen ethanol fermentation - occurs in yeast (single-celled fungi) pyruvate accepts hydrogen from NADH
