relating to, involving, or requiring an absence of free oxygen
glucose metabolism equation
C6H12O6 + 6 O2 --> 6 CO2 + 6 H20
C6H12O6 + 2 ADP + 2 [P]i + 2 NAD+ --> 2 pyruvate + 2 ATP + 2 NADH
of, relating to, or producing sugar.
the disintegration of a cell by rupture of the cell wall or membrane.
Inputs of glycolysis
- 2 ATP
- 2 NAD+
- 4ADP + P
products of glycosis
- 2 pyruvates

- Cellular respiration is the process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and partially captured
- in the form of ATP.
Electron Transport system
- An electron transport chain couples electron transfer between an
- electron donor and an electron acceptor with the transfer of H+ ions
- across a membrane
lactic acid fermentation
- Lactic acid fermentation is a biological process by which glucose,
- fructose, and sucrose are converted into cellular energy and the
- metabolite lactate
Chemiosmosis is the movement of ions across a selectively permeable membrane, down their electrochemical gradien
