1 Chapter 9: Cellular Respiration and Fermentation

2 Essential Knowledge 2.a.1 – All living systems require constant input of free energy ( ). 2.a.2 – Organisms capture and store free energy for use in biological processes ( ).

3 Cellular Respiration - Preview
Def - The process of releasing energy/ATP from food Food - Stored energy in chemical bonds (provides fuel) ATP - Useable energy for cellular processes Wastes – CO2 and H2O Mitochondrion store most of equipment needed for rxn

4 Respiration (Rs) - Equation
C6H12O6 + 6 O CO2 + 6 H2O energy (ATP or heat) Rxn is spontaneous (-∆G) The energy is released (exergonic) from the bonds in the org molecules Remember: Org molecules store energy in their arrangement of atoms Org molecules can be carbs, proteins or fats/lipids


6 Focus of Chapter Cellular Rs Other
Purpose - what is the reaction suppose to do for the cell? Location - where does it occur? Requirements - what is needed to make it run? Products - what does it produce? Other Fermentation, Redox

7 Fuel? What is used? Organic molecules with a large amt of hydrogen make great fuel! Why? H becomes oxidized (only has one e-) very easily and energy is released Remember: Carbs, fats, proteins are storage bins for e- associated with hydrogen

8 Oxidation - definitions
Loss of electrons Loss of energy Loss of hydrogens from carbons Ex: Na+ (of NaCl)

9 Food and Oxidation Food (organic molecules) contain a lot of H atoms
These serve as great long-term fuels Why? Because H becomes easily oxidized (releases energy frequently)

10 Reduction - definitions
Gain of electrons (REDUCING + charge) Gain of energy Gain of hydrogens to carbons Ex: O is often reduced! Why? Because electrons are pulled closer to O

11 Redox reactions

12 Equation for Rs Oxidized Reduced
C6H12O6 + 6 O2 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + energy (ATP/heat) General Redox Equation: Xe- + Y  X + Ye- Reduced

13 Redox reactions Involves transfer of e- and energy release
Sometimes doesn’t involve complete transfer Red and Oxd reactions are usually paired or linked together. Why?Because e- transfer requires donor and acceptor Many of the reactions will be done by phosphorylation Redox video

14 Phosphorylation Adding a phosphate group to a molecule Two types:
Ex: ATP cycle (add P to ADP = ATP) Two types: Oxidative AND substrate-level The phosphate group adds “energy” to the molecule for chemical reactions (think ATP cycle) Endergonic rxn

15 Phosphorylation

16 Cell Respiration – 3 parts
1. Glycolysis 2. Krebs Cycle 3. Electron Transport Chain **Use page 167 as a starting point: Cellular Respiration - A Preview


18 STEP 1 Glycolysis Glyco- glucose -lysis: to split
Formula for glucose: C6H12O6 Universal step in all Rs types. Likely the earliest type of cell energy processes Overview: Glucose splits into 2 3-C sugars (then oxidizes to form pyruvate)

19 Glycolysis Function - To split glucose and produce NADH and ATP
ATP made by substrate-level phosphorylation Enzyme transfers phosphate group from substrate/reactant to ADP to make ATP Location – Cytoplasm of the cell


21 Electron Carrier Compounds
Molecules that transport or shuttle electrons within the cell Exist in two forms: Oxidized (ox) Reduced (red) Ex: NAD and FAD

22 NAD Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide NAD+ + 2 e- NADH
NAD+ = oxidized form NADH = reduced form* *Reduced by e- from food oxidation


24 Glycolysis Requirements
Glucose 2 ATP 4 ADP 2 NAD+ Can occur with or without O2

25 Notice: No CO2 made during this step!
Glycolysis Intro Glycolysis - Products 2 Pyruvic Acids (a 3-Carbon acid) 2 ADP, 4 ATP, 2 NADH NET RESULT: 2 ATP per glucose 2 NADH 2 pyruvate H2O Notice: No CO2 made during this step!


27 STEP 2 Krebs Cycle Oxidizes fuel from pyruvate molecules Also called:
Remember? Pyruvate formed during glycolysis Also called: Citric Acid Cycle Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle

28 Krebs Cycle Function: Oxidize pyruvic acid (to make CO2 )
Produces: NADH and FADH2 Location: Mitochondria matrix Before Krebs: Acetyl CoA must be formed Acetyl CoA is needed to actually start Krebs

29 Pyruvate moved into mito?
Why? How? Pyruvate is moved into mitochondria (from cytoplasm) Why? This is where the 2nd step occurs (specific enzymes are in mito) Serves as a checkpoint Uses active transport and transport proteins. Why? Pyruvate is a charged molecule!

30 Formation of Acetyl CoA

31 Krebs Cycle Requirements
Pyruvic acid (3C acid) Acetyl coenzyme A 4 NAD+ 1 ADP 1 FAD Double this list for each glucose

32 LOADS of energy stored in these molecules
Krebs Cycle Intro Krebs Cycle Products 3 CO2 Acetyl CoA 4 NADH 1 FADH2 1 ATP Double this list for each glucose Made from pyruvate LOADS of energy stored in these molecules


34 Krebs Cycle notes Notice: Does NOT require O2
Only 1 ATP made per cycle Produces most of the cell's energy in the form of NADH and FADH2 Does NOT require O2

35 Comment about ATP The ATPs produced directly in Krebs Cycle and Glycolysis are by: Substrate-level phosphorylation The P group is transferred from a substrate to ADP Making ATP

36 At this point… After the Krebs and glycolysis cycles, the cell has made a total of 4 ATP. Remember: some ATP had to be used to power the cycles. Most energy (at this point) comes from NADH and FADH2

37 Electron Transport System
STEP 3 ETC/S or Electron Transport Chain This is a collection of proteins that are structurally linked Located in inner membrane of mito Folding of mito (cristae) allows for lots of places (large surface area!) for ETC to occur

38 ETC/S Uses sets of Cytochromes
Fe (Iron)-containing proteins to pass electrons The Cytochromes alternate between Red and Ox forms and pass electrons down to O2 Remember: LEO, GER; LEO the lion goes GER Losing Electrons is Oxidation; Gaining Electrons is Reduction

39 As e- moves down the ETC, free energy decreases

40 ETC/S Function: Convert NADH and FADH2 into ATP
Location: Mitochondria cristae/folds

41 ETC Requirements NADH or FADH2 ADP O2
We finally see the need/requirement of Oxygen

42 ETC Products NAD+ and FAD ATP (LOTS!!!) H2O
Remember: Water was also produced during glycolysis ETC explanation

43 ETC - ATP Yields Each NADH  3 ATP Each FADH2  2 ATP TOTAL: 34 ATP

44 Chemiosmotic Hypothesis
ETC energy is used to move H+ (protons) across the mito/cristae membrane ATP is generated as the H+ diffuse back into the matrix


46 ATP Synthase Enzyme An enzyme that uses the flow of H+ to make ATP
Works like an ion pump in reverse, or like a waterwheel under the flow of H+ “water” Power source: H+ concentration difference on opposite sides of mitochondrial membrane

47 Oxidative Phosphorylation
ATP synthase uses oxidative phosphorylation to make ATP during ETC Uses H ions to make ATP and water (using Oxygen)

48 ATP Synthase

49 Alcoholic Fermentation
Done by yeast A kind of fungus Used in brewing beer, winemaking, and baking CO2 bubbles generated give: Bread a rising effect Wine/Beer the carbonated effect

50 Alcoholic Fermentation
Uses only Glycolysis An incomplete oxidation - energy is still left in the products (alcohol) Does NOT require O2 Produces ATP (when O2 is not available)

51 Alcohol

52 Lactic Acid Fermentation
Uses only Glycolysis An incomplete oxidation - energy is still left in the products (lactic acid) Does NOT require O2 Produces ATP (when O2 is not available)

53 Lactic acid

54 Lactic Acid Fermentation
Done by human muscle cells under oxygen debt Lactic Acid is a toxin and can cause soreness and stiffness in muscles Oxygen intake can’t keep up with sugar breakdown Used in dairy industry (yogurt/cheese) Also used to produce methanol and acetone

55 Fermentation - Summary
Way of using up NADH so Glycolysis can still run Provides ATP to a cell even when O2 is absent

56 Fermentation *Alcoholic OR *Lactic acid

57 Aerobic vs Anaerobic Aerobic - Rs with O2 Anaerobic - Rs without O2
Aerobic - All three Rs steps Anaerobic - Glycolysis only

58 Strict vs. Facultative Strict - can only do Rs this one way
Either aerobic OR anaerobic-NOT both! Facultative - can switch types depending on O2 availability Ex - yeast

59 Question?? Since yeast can do both aerobic and anaerobic Rs, which is the better process if given a choice? Hint: Check the ATP yields from both processes.

60 ATP yields by Rs type Anaerobic - Glycolysis only gets 2 ATPs per glucose Aerobic - Glycolysis, Krebs, and ETC. Generates many more ATPs per glucose.

61 Aerobic ATP yield Glycolysis - 2 ATPS, 2 NADHs
Krebs - 2 ATPS, 8 NADHs, 2 FADH2 Each NADH = 3 ATP Each FADH2 = 2 ATP

62 Aerobic ATP Sum Max = 38 ATPs per glucose 10 NADH x 3 = 30 ATPs
2 FADH2 x 2 = ATPs 2 ATPs (Gly) = ATPs 2 ATPs (Krebs) = 2 ATPs Max = 38 ATPs per glucose

63 However... Some energy (2 ATP) is used in shuttling the NADH and pyruvate from Glycolysis into the mitochondria Actual ATP yield ~ 36/glucose

64 Yeast Would rather do aerobic Rs;
This has 18x more energy per glucose than anaerobic But, anaerobic will keep you alive if oxygen is not present.

65 Importance of Rs Convert food to ATP
Living orgs use ATP to fuel body processes Ex: reproduction, cell division Provides materials for use in other cellular pathways

66 Other Respiration Items of Importance
Alcohol Industry - almost every society has a fermented beverage Baking Industry - many breads use yeast to provide bubbles to raise the dough


68 Alcohol Matching Game! Sugar Cane Gin Barley Rum Grapes Wine Juniper Cones Vodka Agave Leaves Beer Rice Tequila Potatoes Saki
