Document Summary

Glucose is completely oxidized to carbon dioxide and water. 38 moles of atp produced/gram mole of glucose. Glucose is broken down to lactate or alcohol. In etc (electron transport chain), the terminal acceptor is oxygen. In etc (electron transport chain), the terminal acceptor is nitrate or nitrite. Emp or glycolysis is the metabolic pathway that converts glucose into pyruvate. It occurs in both aerobic and anaerobic organisms in the cytosol of the cell. The carbohydrate (glucose) degradation by emp-pathway is outlined below. Energy is released for the cell in the form of atp in this process. Because most microorganisms are used in food production, energy is required for the process. Glycolysis provides with immediate energy in the form of atp to organisms in order to carry out their functions. 2. 2 q1: adsorption on a solid support. This technique relies on the affinity of the support for enzyme molecules.
