Chapter Learning Objectives Chapter 8: Harvesting Energy: Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration 8.1 How is glucose metabolized? Write the summary equation for cellular respiration o 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + sunlight + energy C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 o C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O In general terms, distinguish between fermentation and cellular respiration o Fermentation is turned into waste product and little energy is produced. In cellular respiration, it is broken down to CO 2 and produces a lot of energy. 8.2 How is the energy in glucose captured during glycolysis? Describe how the carbon skeleton of glucose changes as it proceeds through the glucose activation and energy harvest steps of glycolysis o The energy of 2 ATP molecules is used to convert glucose to the highly reactive fructose bisphosphate, which splits into two reactive molecules of G3P. The two G3P molecules undergo a series of reactions that generate four ATP and two NADH molecules. Thus, glycolysis results in a net
