2 Energy Review Energy Storing Molecules ATP, NADPH (NAD+), FADH (FAD+), FADH2ATP supplies most of the energy that drives metabolism in living thingsATP releases energy when converted into ADP
3 Cellular Respiration Overview Living things get most of the energy they need from glucose.Autrotrophs make glucose using photosynthesisHeterotrophs get glucose from food they eatCellular RespirationThe process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen.
4 Cellular Respiration Overview Cellular Respiration Overall Equation6O2 + C6H12O6 6CO2 + 6H2O + EnergyThree StagesGlycolysisKreb’s CycleElectron Transport ChainThe Main form of Energy produced = ATP
5 Electron Transport Chain Cellular Respiration: An OverviewMitochondrionElectrons carried in NADHElectrons carried in NADH and FADH2Pyruvic acidGlucoseElectron Transport ChainKrebs CycleGlycolysisMitochondrionCytoplasm
6 Glycolysis Glyco = Glucose lysis = Breakdown Occurs in the cytoplasm of the cellMolecules of GLUCOSE are broken down into 2 molecules of Pyruvic Acid.Cell must use (invest) 2 ATPProduces Energy Carrier Molecules4 ATP2 NADH
7 Glycolysis Glucose Pyruvic Acid Pyruvic Acid To the Electron Transport Chain
8 The “Mighty” Mitochondria The mitochondria is the organelle where the final stages of cellular respiration occurs.Kreb’s CycleElectron Transport ChainCells that use a lot of energy have high numbers of mitochondria.Example: Muscle cells in the heart!!
9 Kreb’s Cycle Aerobic Process = Only if oxygen is present!! Occurs in the MATRIX of the mitochondriaPyruvic Acid from Glycolysis enters to form1 ATP3 NADH1 FADH2CO2 (which is released when we exhale!!)AKA….Citric Acid Cycle
10 Krebs CycleAs long as a steady supply of Pyruvate is coming into the mitochondrion Matrix, the Cycle can continue
11 Electron Transport Chain Energy carrier molecules produced during Glycolysis and the Kreb’s Cycle enter the ETCNADHFADH2Occurs in the folds of the Inner Membrane of the Mitochondria (Cristae)The electrons are passed down a chain of proteins until they reach the final electron acceptor…..oxygen!So this step is aerobic (requires oxygen)The ETC produces 32 ATP and H2O
14 What happens if NO OXYGEN is available?? The Kreb’s Cycle and Electron Transport Chain can’t function!!These are anaerobic conditions!!
15 Fermentation The cell can use Fermentation instead!! Occurs in the CytoplasmJust like glycolysis!!FermentationA series of reactions that convert NADH (from glycolysis) back into NAD allowing glycolysis to keep producing a small amount of ATP
16 Pyruvic Acid + NADH alcohol + CO2 + NAD+ 2 Types of FermentationAlcoholic FermentationYeasts use this process to form ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide as waste products.This causes bread dough to riseThis is how some alcoholic beverages are madePyruvic Acid + NADH alcohol + CO2 + NAD+
17 Lactic Acid Fermentation Occurs in bacteria (unicellular organisms)This is how cheese, yogurt, and pickles are made.Occurs in muscles during rapid exerciseWhen your body runs out of oxygen your muscle cells must produce some ATP using fermentation and glycolysisLactic Acid build-up causes muscle soreness or burning after intense activity.Pyruvic Acid + NADH lactic acid + NAD+
