Chapter 8 Harvesting Energy: Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration Vocabulary acetyl Co-A - comes before Krebs cycle, pyruvate is split and released in the Krebs cycle aerobic - with oxygen anaerobic - without oxygen cellular respiration - a series of reactions, occurring under aerobic conditions in which large amounts of ATP are produced electron transport chain - series of e- carrier molecules, found in thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts and inner membrane of mitochondria, that extract energy from e- and generate ATP or other energetic molecules fermentation - in anaerobic conditions, pyruvate accepts electrons from NADH producing ethanol or lactate glucose activation - the energy of 2 ATP molecules is used to convert glucose to the highly reactive fructose biphosphate, which splits into 2 reactive molecules of G3P glycolysis - initial reactions that break down glucose without the use of oxygen Krebs cycle - a cyclic series of reactions, occurring in the matrix of mitochondria, which the acetyl groups from pyruvic acids produced by glycolysis are broken down to CO2,
