Unformatted text preview: produce ATP. Total ATP yield per glucose Conversions NADH produced in the cytoplasm produces two to three ATP by the electron transport system. NADH produced in the mitochondria produces approximately three ATP. FADH 2 adds its electrons to the electron transport system at a lower level than NADH, so it produces approximately two ATP.
