Electron Transport Chain electron extraction - potential energy of electron transferred when it moves reduction can move electron completely or change degree of sharing in a covalent bond electrons shared equally in C-H bonds because C and H have similar electronegativity when glucose forms CO2 and H2O, oxygen atoms attract electrons away from hydrogen/carbon o oxygen more electronegative than hydrogen/carbon o energy released when electrons move from a less electronegative atom to a more electronegative atom o shift of electrons during oxidative respiration releases energy to create ATP reducing power - NADH can carry energy of electrons donated to it o can pass along electrons and reduce other atoms o reduces fatty acid precursors to form fats when ATP is plentiful releasing energy in stages is more efficient than releasing it all at once electron transport chain - stage 4 series of membrane-associated proteins NADH dehydrogenase
