Cellular Respiration

  1. What is cellular respiration?
    a process that requires O2 and uses energy from glucose (macromolecules) to produce ATP and water
  2. what is the chemical equation for cellular respiration?
    C6H12O6 + 6O2 ===> 6CO2 + 6H20 + ATP
  3. Mitochondria
    • organelle where cellular respiration takes place
    • Image Upload 1
  4. Redox reactions
    transfer of one or more electrons from one reactant to another, there are two types of redox reactions: oxadation, reduction
  5. oxidation reaction
    the LOSS of electrons or gaining of oxygen
  6. Reduction reaction
    the GAIN of electrons or gaining of oxygen
  7. What are the four main reactions of cellular respiration?
    • 1. glycolysis (splitting of sugar)
    • 2. Grooming phase
    • 3. Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle)
    • 4. Electron transfer chain (ETC) and oxidative phosphorylation , also called chemiosmosis
  8. Where does glycolysis take place?
    in the cytosol, just outside the mitochondria
  9. Where does the grooming phase take place?
    migration from the cytosol to the matrix
  10. Where does the Krebs cycle take place?
    the mitochondrial matrix
  11. where does ETC and chemiosmosis take place
    inner mitochondrial membrane
