Oxidation

Oxidation of organic
compounds is the basis
of respiration
Reduction of ADP to
ATP
Oxidation of ATP is
coupled with a
biologic process
Muscle
contractions
Oxidation

Associated with the


release of energy
Reduction

Associated with the gain


of energy
Glycolysis

Occurs in the cytoplasm


of all cells
Oxidation of glucose
into two pyruvate
molecules
Reduction of ADP to
ATP
Glycolysis

Phosphorylation
Phosphate group from
2ATP molecules has a
stronger attraction to
the hexose
Relative energy of
the hexose
biphosphate is greatly
increased
Glycolysis

Lysis
Hexose biphosphate is
lysed into two shorter
molecules
Triose phosphate
Glycolysis

Oxidation
Triose phosphate is
oxidized into pyruvate
Oxygen is removed
from the triose
phosphate
Combines with
NAD+ to make
NADH+H+
Glycolysis

ATP Formation
As triose phosphate
oxidizes it adds a
phosphate to ADP
reducing this to ATP
Enough energy to
create 2 ATP
Glycolysis
