Learning objectives At the end of this lecture, you will be able to: 1) Compare the energy yield of cellular respiration and fermentation. 2) Describe the energy investment and energy payoffs involved in the 10-step glycolysis process. 3) Explain feedback inhibition of metabolic pathways, using the phosphofructokinase enzyme of glycolysis as an example.

1. All organisms use glucose to build lipids and carbohydrates; cells recover glucose by breaking down these molecules. ! Glucose is used to make ATP through either cellular respiration or fermentation . ! Each of the four steps of cellular respiration consists of a series of chemical reactions, and a distinctive starting molecule and characteristic set of products. ! Cellular respiration produces ATP from a molecule with high potential energy – usually glucose.
