Biology: The Dynamic Science Ch8 aerobic respiration The form of cellular respiration found in eukaryotes and many prokaryotes in which oxygen is a reactant in the ATP–producing process. alcoholic fermentation Reaction in which pyruvate is converted into ethyl alcohol and CO 2 in a two– step series that also converts NADH into NAD + . anaerobic respiration The form of cellular respiration found in some prokaryotes in which a molecule other than oxygen is used in the ATP–producing process. ATP synthase A membrane–spanning protein complex that couples the energetically favorable transport of protons across a membrane to the synthesis of ATP. cell fractionation Technique that divides cells into fractions containing a single cell component. cellular respiration The process by which energy–rich molecules are broken down to produce energy in the form of ATP. chemiosmotic hypothesis Model proposing that mitochondrial electron transfer produces an H + gradient and that the gradient powers ATP synthesis by ATP synthase.
