2Glycolysis is only the start Pyruvate has more energy to yield3 more C to strip off (to oxidize)if O2 is available, pyruvate enters mitochondriaenzymes of Krebs cycle complete the full oxidation of sugar to CO22x6C3Cglucose pyruvateCan’t stop at pyruvate == not enough energy producedPyruvate still has a lot of energy in it that has not been captured.It still has 3 carbons! There is still energy stored in those bonds.pyruvate CO23C1C

5Mitochondria – Function Oooooh! Form fits function!Mitochondria – FunctionDividing mitochondriaWho else divides like that?Membrane-bound proteinsEnzymes & permeasesAlmost all eukaryotic cells have mitochondriathere may be 1 very large mitochondrion or 100s to 1000s of individual mitochondrianumber of mitochondria is correlated with aerobic metabolic activitymore activity = more energy needed = more mitochondriaWhat cells would have a lot of mitochondria?Active cells:• muscle cells• nerve cellsWhat does this tell us about the evolution of eukaryotes?__________________________Advantage of highly folded inner membrane?____________________________ ____________________________
6pyruvate acetyl CoA + CO2 Oxidation of pyruvatePyruvate enters mitochondrial matrix3 step oxidation processreleases _______ (count the carbons!)reduces _______________ (moves e-)produces __________________Acetyl CoA enters ________________[2x]pyruvate acetyl CoA + CO23CNAD2C1CWhere does the CO2 go?Exhale!CO2 is fully oxidized carbon == can’t get any more energy out itCH4 is a fully reduced carbon == good fuel!!!
7Pyruvate oxidized to Acetyl CoA NAD+reductionCoenzyme AAcetyl CoAPyruvateRelease CO2 because completely oxidized…already released all energy it can release … no longer valuable to cell….Because what’s the point?The Point is to make ATP!!!CO2C-CC-C-Coxidation2 x Yield = 2C sugar + NADH + CO2
8Krebs cycle 1937 | 1953 aka Citric Acid Cycle in _________________________8 step pathwayeach catalyzed by specific enzymestep-wise catabolism of 6C citrate moleculeEvolved later than glycolysisdoes that make evolutionary sense?bacteria 3.5 billion years ago (glycolysis)free O2 2.7 billion years ago (photosynthesis)eukaryotes 1.5 billion years ago (aerobic respiration = organelles mitochondria)Hans Krebs

Two CO2 molecules were produced from that 2 carbon sugar. Glucose has now been fully oxidized!But where’s all the ATP???x25C4CCO24C4C

11Whassup? So we fully oxidized glucose C6H12O6 CO2 & ended up with 4 ATP!What’s the point?
