Unit 8 .Events of Glycolysis In phase one.6-DP sugar then splits (lysis) into two. This is accomplished by using two ATP molecules to phosphorylate the sugar at carbons 1 and 6.6-DP).6Diphosphate (F-1. Glycolysis takes in glucose as a ³fuel´ and transforms it into a ³super active´ intermediate compound called Fructose-1. half sized sugar fragments which become Glyceraldehyde Phosphate and Dihydroxyacetone Phosphate.Objective 2 . In phase two. the F-1.

inorganic phosphate is added from the substrate of the cytoplasm to each intermediate. the two half sized intermediates are oxidized down to two pyruvic acid molecules. During this process. hydrogen along with its electrons are removed from each intermediate.Events of Glycolysis In phase three. This phosphate is added to ADP to form four ATP molecules. NAD picks up the hydrogens for transport and all of the phosphate is removed (4 total) from the intermediates. Unit 8 .Objective 2 .

Events of Glycolysis
The removal of hydrogen is called dehydrogenation and is an oxidation process. When NAD picks up hydrogen, a reduction process occurs. The addition of phosphate is called phosphorylation and results in the net production of two ATP molecules ( two used up in phase one minus four produced in phase three). The overall transformation of glucose into two pyruvic acids is also an oxidation process.

Summary of Glycolysis

To begin the Krebs cycle. This process occurs in the fluid matrix of the mitochondrion. Unit 8 .Events of The Krebs Cycle The Krebs cycle is named after Hans Krebs and is a metabolic event that follows glycolysis. uses the pyruvic acid from glycolysis and is aerobic. pyruvic acid is converted to acetyl COA.Objective 2 .

Next. 2.The removal of hydrogen is called dehydrogenation which is an oxidation process. At this point.Objective 2 . two carbon dioxides are produced and diffuse to the blood.Conversion of Pyruvic Acid to Acetyl COA The conversion of pyruvic acid to acetyl COA is a three step process: 1. COA is added to each acetyl group. each of the two pyruvic acids are decarboxylated . hydrogen is removed from each acetyl group and added to NAD. This event yields two acetyl groups. Unit 8 . 3. The addition of hydrogen to NAD is a reduction process. First. Finally.

The citric acid is then systematically decarboxylated and dehyrogenated in order to use up the acetyl groups that were attached to the oxaloacetate. This results in the first major product of the Krebs cycle called citric acid. Unit 8 .Events of The Krebs Cycle AcetylCOA which results from the conversion of pyruvic acid then reacts with oxaloacetate using an enzyme called citrate synthase.Objective 2 . Because of this. This allows oxaloacetate and COA to be used in the next cycle. the Krebs cycle is sometimes called the citric acid cycle.

Summary of the Krebs Cycle .

The ETS takes place in the cristae of the mitochondrion and uses oxygen directly (aerobic). This system contains respiratory enzyme complexes that include iron compounds called cytochromes. This metabolic process uses the reduced NAD and FAD that is produced by glycolysis and the Krebs cycle. Unit 8 .Objective 2 . The cytochromes accept hydrogen from NAD and FAD.Events of the Electron Transport System (ETS) The electron transport system can also be called the electron transport chain.

Objective 2 .Events of the Electron Transport System After receiving hydrogen. the cytochromes split hydrogen into an electron and a hydrogen ion. Hydrogen ions are passed into the space between the inner and outer membane of the mitochondrion where they accumulate and create an elevated hydrogen potential. Unit 8 . The high potential causes the hydrogen ions to pass through an ATP synthase protein portal. Electrons from hydrogen are passed through the chain to oxygen.

Events of the Electron Transport System The hydrogen from NAD will yield 3 ATP¶s and the hydrogen from FAD will yield 2 ATP¶s. The hydrogen ions that pass back into the mitochondrial matrix then combine with the oxygen that has gained electrons to form water. Unit 8 . The ETS will process 10 reduced NAD¶s from glycolysis and the Krebs cycle to yield 30 ATP¶s.The ETS will also process 4 reduced FAD¶s from the Krebs cycle to yield 4 ATP¶s.Objective 2 .

this is called oxidation. When Oxygen accepts those electrons.Objective 2 Summary of the Electron Transport System . When ATP synthase adds phosphate to ADP when it passes hydrogen ions to reduced oxygen.When hydrogen loses electrons in the ETS. it is called reduction. The addition of hydrogen ions to oxygen creates enough water to yield a net of 6 waters for the process of cellular respiration. this process is called oxidative phosphorylation.
