Chapter 7: Cellular Respiration and Fermentation
Cellular respiration (Aerobic Respiration)
* Cellular respiration may occur under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions (in some prokaryotes). For our purposes cellular respiration is an
aerobic process.
Define cellular respiration
o The set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert
biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and then release waste
products.
List the energy-yielding foods that are reservoirs of electrons associated with hydrogen.
1. Glucose
2. Carbon
3. Oxygen
4. Hydrogen
The purpose of cellular respiration is to make the energy intermediates ATP and NADH. What type of
chemical reaction is responsible for their production?
o
Define:
o Oxidation
Removal of electrons
o Reduction
Addition of electrons
What is the acronym for an oxidation-reduction reaction?
o Redox reactions
Can the above reaction occur without a donor or acceptor?
What is NADH?
o Energy intermediate
o Releases a lot of energy when oxidized that can be used to make ATP
List two ways in which ATP is made and define/describe each
o Substrate-level phosphorylation
Enzyme directly transfers phosphate from one molecule to another molecule
o Chemiosmosis
Energy stored in electrochemical gradient is used to make ATP from ADP and Pi
If the glucose could immediately react with oxygen, then all the energy via a redox reaction would be released at
once. Because body temperature is low and the barrier of activation high, oxidation of food molecules occurs in a
stepwise fashion mediated by specific enzymes (i.e. each step requires a specific enzyme).
List the three main phases of cellular respiration:
o 1.Glycolysis
a. Breakdown of pyruvate
o 2. Citric acid cycle
o 3. Oxidative phosphorylation
Glycolysis (starting molecule = glucose)

*Although glycolysis does not require oxygen to occur it is considered part of cellular respiration because it almost always precedes
the other two steps.
Stage 1 of cellular respiration
Occurs in cytosol
Can occur with or without oxygen
Input molecule glucose
Steps in glycolysis nearly identical in all living species
Phases
o 1) energy investment
2 ATP Hydrolyzed
o 2) Cleavage
2 molecules glyceraldehyde
3 phosphate
o 3) Energy liberation

List the three phases of glycolysis and explain what happens in each step
o 1. Energy Investment- 2 ATP hydrolyzed
Two ATP molecules are hydrolyzed, and the phosphates from those ATP molecules are
attached to glucose, which is converted to fructose-1, 6-biphosphate. The energy
investment phase raises the free energy of glucose, allowing later reactions to be
exergonic.
o 2. Cleavage- 2 molecules glyceraldehyde, 3 phosphate
Breaks the six-carbon molecule into two molecules of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate.
