AP Biology Ch 9 Respiration pt 3 RJ 6th edition. Name: Jason Shah Compare the amount of ATP produced in anaerobic respiration and aerobic respiration. What is the percentage of efficiency for each process? Account for the difference. Q. 7 p. 182 Aerobic respiration: 36 ATP Anaerobic respiration: 2ATP Anaerobic respiration produced much less ATP because it can only utilize Glycolysis because oxygen is required to be the final electron acceptor at the end of the Krebs cycle, where most of the ATP comes from. Two additional ATPs are produced during Glycolysis when oxygen is present. (12 x 30)/686 = 52% efficiency of aerobic oxidation of glucose 2.13% efficiency of anaerobic oxidation of glucose Why is less ATP produced in aerobic respiration in a eukaryotic cell than is expected theoretically? At the end of the electron transport chain, 36 molecules of ATP should be produced, theoretically. In actuality, closer to 30 molecules of ATP are generated due to "leaky" mitochondrial membranes and use of ATP to power other
