Chemiosmosis ADP -> ATP Concentration Gradient (Potential Energy = [H+] Relation to Electron transport chain Figure 6.7
Substrate-level Phosphorylation Phosphate group transferred to ADP from substrate (FORM ATP!!!) ATP production, but is small % in cell.
Systematic oxidation of organic compounds to release energy May be anaerobic, i.e. in the absence of oxygen, or… Aerobic, requiring oxygen. Cellular Respiration
Oxidation is the loss of electrons Reduction is gain of electrons.. Oxidation and reduction always happen together… Remember electronegativity (ability to “grab” electrons: O > N > C > H) Redox Review
Methane is a saturated hydrocarbon. When burned it is oxidized and energy is given off. The overall equation is: Oxidation of Methane
Glucose Oxidation Glucose (Other organic molecules) broken down / rearranged to gain energy from within bonds. C6H12O6 + 6O2 -------> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + ATP (ENERGY)
Energy Use within the Cell Cellular respiration “dismantles” glucose in a series of steps. Energy from organic molecules (I.e. glucose) is harvested from the chemical bonds within the molecule. Electrons are “shuttled” through a series of energy-releasing reactions.
Glucose loses H+ (Conversion to CO2) Oxygen gains H+ (Conversion to Water) H+ movements represent electron transfers.
Key Players in Redox Rxns Dehygrogenase = enzyme NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) = coenzyme Both remove H atoms (& electrons) - - function as oxidizing agents.
The total oxidation of glucose will yield the same products as the total oxidation of methane... Oxidation of Glucose

GLYCOLYSIS (Exergonic) All living things follow the same steps in the initial breakdown of glucose (C 6 ) to pyruvic acid (pyruvate) (C 3 ). Some stop there, realizing 2 ATP in energy, others proceed further and realize as much as 38 ATP.

OXIDATION of PYRUVATE In the process of glycolysis, one molecule of glucose produces two molecules of pyruvate. All living things perform glycolysis. Some anaerobically convert pyruvate to ethyl alcohol, and others convert it to lactate.
The Aerobic Pathway Production of NADH Product is more oxidized than pyruvate
Reduction of NAD + to NADH + H + NAD is a molecule that can be reduced by electrons that have been oxidized away from the carbon substrates… NADH, in turn, can be oxidized and some other molecule reduced with its electrons...
Reduction of the next electron acceptor, FMN NADH yields its electrons and Hydrogen ions to FMN (Flavin Mononucleotide) FMNH then can be oxidized and pass the electrons on to the next acceptor...
Electron Transport Chain as the electrons are passed on energy is lowered… enough energy is transformed to make three ATPs for each reduced NADH… the final electron acceptor is oxygen
What about FADH 2 ? FADH2 has less energy than NADH it passes its electrons directly to Coenzyme Q, skipping one ATP step...
