Study Notes

Cellular Respiration

Overview

  • Cellular respiration is the process by which cells generate energy from glucose
  • It involves the breakdown of glucose to produce ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

Stages of Cellular Respiration

  1. Glycolysis
    • Takes place in the cytoplasm
    • Breaks down glucose into pyruvate
    • Produces 2 ATP and 2 NADH molecules
  2. Pyruvate Oxidation
    • Takes place in the mitochondria
    • Converts pyruvate into acetyl-CoA
    • Produces 2 NADH molecules
  3. Citric Acid Cycle (Krebs Cycle)
    • Takes place in the mitochondria
    • Breaks down acetyl-CoA into carbon dioxide
    • Produces 2 ATP, 6 NADH, and 2 FADH2 molecules
  4. Oxidative Phosphorylation
    • Takes place in the mitochondria
    • Generates ATP from the energy released during the electron transport chain
    • Produces 32-34 ATP molecules

Electron Transport Chain

  • A series of protein complexes that generate ATP through chemiosmosis
  • Takes place in the mitochondrial inner membrane
  • Produces ATP through the movement of protons across the membrane

ATP Yield

  • Total ATP yield from one glucose molecule: 36-38 ATP
  • ATP yield from each stage:
    • Glycolysis: 2 ATP
    • Pyruvate Oxidation: 2 ATP
    • Citric Acid Cycle: 2 ATP
    • Oxidative Phosphorylation: 32-34 ATP

Importance of Cellular Respiration

  • Provides energy for cellular activities
  • Essential for maintaining cellular homeostasis
  • Impacts overall health and well-being
