Cellular Respiration 3 simple steps, lots of ATP

Cellular Respiration is the process in which plants and animals create energy, or ATP. This process's equation is the complete opposite of Photosynthesis.

Now, there are two ways ATP is made after GLYCOLYSIS

Cellular Respiration= An AEROBIC process AND Fermentation= An ANAEROBIC process

WE will be talking about CELLULAR RESPIRATION

The VERY first step in Cellular respiration is GLYCOLYSIS

Glycolysis is a process that takes place in the cytoplasm when glucose is converted into ATP, NADH, and Pyruvates

After Glycolysis, cellular respiration can occur.

STEP ONE

Pyruvates from GLYCOLYSIS seperate into Carbon Dioxide and Acetyl coenzyme A, otherwise known as Acetyl CoA, and 2 NADH are created.

STEP TWO

The next step is the KREB CYCLE (A.K.A the CITRIC ACID CYCLE), where we start with 6 Carbon molecules and slowly take them away, one at a time

STEP 2A

Starting with 6 Carbon molecules, we will take 1 Carbon and add it to NAD+, to create NADH

STEP 2B

Now having 5 Carbon molecules, we will take another Carbon to create another NADH

STEP 2C

ADP will be turned into ATP and the 4 leftover Carbons will continue through the cycle

STEP 2D

FAD2+ will become FADH2 and NAD+ will become NADH

STEP 3

Finally, the remaining Carbon molecules will be used in the next cycle, to be added to the two from the Acetyl CoA.

After the Krebs Cycle, Oxidative Phosphorylation(ETC) occurs

ETC occurs in the CRISTAE of the mitochondria

NADH and FADH2 are REQUIRED for ETC

High energy electrons from the Krebs cycle are used to turn ADP into ATP

Oxygen is a REACTANT and water is a PRODUCT
