Total energy released per 1 ATP of glucose at end of Respiration is what?
Glycolysis- takes place in cytoplasmoxidizes glucose into 2 pyruvate (costs 1 ATP)Energy Payoff= 2 ATP+ 2 NADH net difference from the oxidizing of glucose.Krebs Cycle or Citric Acid Cycle-Glucose is further oxidized by changing the pyruvate to CO2.1. pyruvate enters mitchondrion where its further oxidized2. The mitochondrion creates Acetyl CoA (gives E-'s to NAD+ and FAD+) from pyruvate.3. E-'s from oxidized pyruvate are given to NADH's4. As the pyruvate is broken down 2 CO2 molecules are released.5. 2 ATP is generated again, but most energy goes to NADH and FADH2 to the ETCETC1. ETC accepts all the E-'s from NADH's from first 2 steps.2. These E-'s get passed down the chain to more electronegative molecules.3. O2 is the final accepter and it forms with E-'s and H+ to make Water.Oxydative Phosphorylation1. H+ gradient, which was formed from ETC is used to make energy as the H+ is pumped out through ATP Synthase.2. This process of creating ATP from ATP Synthase is called Chemiostasis.3.
