    •Addition of electrons (e-) or hydrogens
  6. Prokaryotic Cell figure
    • Capsule -> Cell wall -> Plasma membrane
    • Cytoplasm inside cell
    • Ribosomes - round balls
    • Nucleoid - contains DNA
    • Plasmid - small circular DNA strand
  7. Redox reactions
    •always occur in pairs: coupled.

    •There is an electron donor and electron acceptor which constitute a redox pair.

    •Process salvages electrons and their energy

    •Released energy can be captured to phosphorylate ADP or another compound.

  11. Krebs Cycle
    • Location Prokaryotes: Cytoplasm
    • Eukaryotes: Mitochondria

    • O2 requirements:
    • Aerobic respiration: O2 is the electron acceptor

    • Anaerobic respiration: other electron acceptor
    • (ex. nitrate, nitrite, sulfate)
  12. Electron Transport and Oxidative Phosphorylation
    • •Function: oxidize reduced coenzymes produced by glycolysis & the Krebs cycle, and produce ATP
    •     –Chemiosmosis– mechanism using the electron transport chain that produces ATP
    •     –Harvests energy from oxidative phosphorylation reactions
  13. Oxidation/Reduction
    OIL RIG, meaning "oxidation is loss" and "reduction is gain," and LEO says GER, meaning "loss of e- = oxidation" and "gain of e- = reduced
  14. Electron Transport and Oxidative Phosphorylation
    • •Location: cell membrane (in prokaryotes)
    •       mitochondrial membrane ( in eukaryotes)

    • •Oxygen Requirements:
    •     –O2 for aerobic respiration
    •     –Nitrate, nitrite, or sulfate for anaerobic respiration
  15. Electron Transport Chain

    • •Ending Compounds: NAD+, FAD, H2O, & ATP
    •                                 (for aerobic respiration)
  16. Electron Transport Chain cont.
    •Types of Reactions:

    • 1)Oxidation/Reduction (generates oxidized coenzymes, that can then be re-used, ie.
    • recycles coenzymes)

    • 2)Chemiosmosis: describes the process where by a proton gradient established across the cell membrane is used to drive ATP synthase which creates ATP
    •     –Proton motive force generated as H+ are
    • pumped out of the cell
  17. The electron transport chain produces ATP by chemiosmosis
    •Chemiosmosis – as the electron transport carriers shuttle electrons, they actively pump hydrogen ions (protons) across the membrane setting up a gradient of hydrogen ions - proton motive force.
  18. Aerobic Respiration
    • •Function: converts glucose to CO2 + H2O
    •                  releases energy (ATP)

    • •Overall reaction:
    •                  C6H12O6 + 6O2 →6CO2 + 6H2O
  19. Aerobic Respiration cont.
    •Glycolysis + transition step + krebs cycle + electron transport chain

    •Oxygen (O2) is the final electron acceptor
  20. Aerobic Respiration

    •38 ATP theoretical max.
  21. Fermentation
