During glycolysis, glucose (C 6 ) is converted to two pyruvates (C 3 ). C-C-C-C-C-C C-C-C + C-C-C Formation of Acetyl CoA One acetyl CoA is formed for each pyruvate produced by glycolysis (see the step above). C-C-C C-C + CO 2 pyruvate acetyl CoA + CO 2 Krebs Cycle C-C 2 CO 2 The Krebs Cycle produces NADH, FADH 2 , and ATP. NADH and FADH 2 carry electrons to the electron transport system. Electron Transport System In the electron transport system, NADH and FADH 2 are oxidized and the energy is used to

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.
