PRODUCTION OF ENERGY 1. Produced as result of oxidation-reduction reactions. 2. Stored in ATP ( see structure pg. ). 3. Release of energy: ATP ADP + PO 4 + E 4. Pathways : A. Embden-Meyerhoff pathway (Glycolysis) 1). Does not require oxygen. 2). Occurs in presence or absence of oxygen. 3). 2 ATP's used to initiate reaction 2ADP + E 4). Oxidation of glucose to pyruvic acid (3C). 5). Glucose (6C) 2 3C compounds 2 pyruvic acids (3C) 5). H + transferred to coenzyme (NAD) E . 6). 4 ATP's produced net gain 2 ATP's. B. Fermentation (see fig. in text) 1). Anaerobic metabolism of pyruvic acid (3C). 2). 3). H + transferred from coenzyme NAD to pyruvic acid or its derivatives (intermediate compounds). 4). By-products (alcohols, acids) useful in production of cheeses, wines, etc. C. Aerobic Respiration - Kreb's Cycle & Electron Transport System (see fig. in text) 1). Aerobic 2). 2 pyruvic acids (3C) acetyl (2C) + CoA
