Unformatted text preview: synthesize ATP from ADP and inorganic phosphate. ♣ Cellular respiration has four components: 1) Glycolysis One molecule of glucose is broken into two molecules of the three- carbon compound pyruvate. Two ATP molecules are produced from ADP and one molecule of NAD+ is reduced from NADH. 2) Pyruvate Processing Pyruvate is processed to form the compound acetyl- CoA. Another molecule of NADH is produced. 3) Citric Acid Cycle Acetyl- CoA is oxidized to two molecules of Carbon Dioxide. More ATP and NADH are produced FAD is reduced to form another electron...
