Chapter 7 BIO notes 1 Cellular Respiration o ATP molecules are produced by cellular respiration which is a process that requires the participation of mitochondria. o Take in oxygen, gives off carbon dioxide o Oxidation of substrates is a fundamental part of cellular respiration; cellular respiration is a redox reaction in this case releases energy then used by cell. o Cellular respiration is the reverse of photosynthesis 2 Phases of Complete Glucose Breakdown o Glucose is broken down slowly as controlled by cells making bonds more efficiently captured and making ATP molecules o The enzyme that carries out oxidation during cellular respiration are assisted by nonprotein helpers called coenzymes o 4 Phases to cellular respiration where carbon dioxide and water are produced: 1. Glycolysis - occurs in cytoplasm, breakdown glucose into 2 molecules of pyruvate, 2 ATP are gained and oxidation results in NADH 2. Preparatory Reaction - takes place in matrix of mitochondria, Pyruvate broken down into 2 carbon acetyl groups carried by coenzyme, results in NADH and CO2 3. Citric Acid Cycle - takes place in mitochondria matrix, NADH and FADH2 result and CO2 is released, produce 2 ATP per glucose molecule 4. Electron transport chain - in cristae mitochondria, NADH and FADH2 give up electron to the chain, energy is released and captured moving from higher to lower energy state, produces water 2 Outside of Mitochondria: Glycolysis o Takes place here in eukaryotic cells within the cytoplasm o During Glycolysis, glucose is broken down to 2 molecules of pyruvate. o It is divided into the energy investment step when some ATP is used to begin the reactions and the energy harvesting steps when both NADPH and ATP are produced 3 Energy-Investment Step o During this, 2 ATP transfer phosphate groups to substrates and two ADP+P result 4 Energy-Harvesting Steps o During this, electrons and hydrogen ions are removed from the substrates and captured by NAD+ producing NADH. o Energized phosphate groups are used to synthesize 4 ATP by a process called substrate level ATP synthesis which basically involves a transfer of a phosphate group from the intermediate molecule to ADP forming ATP o If oxygen is present, the end product is used to generate more ATP. If oxygen is not available, goes to fermentation pathways 5 Outside of the Mitochondria: Fermentation o Oxygen is required for the complete breakdown of glucose o Fermentation, is the anaerobic breakdown of glucose, resulting in the production of 2 ATP per glucose, ensures that ATP is available for cellular processes o Why is it beneficial for pyruvate to be reduced to lactate when oxygen is not available? The reaction regenerates NAD+ which can pick up more electrons during the earlier reactions of glycolysis. 6 Microorganisms and Fermentation o Yeast is a good example of microorganisms generating ethyl alcohol and CO2 when they carry out fermentation. 7 Inside the Mitochondria o If oxygen is present following glycolysis, the cell will enter the aerobic phases of cellular respiration and these reactions occur inside the mitochondria 8 Preparatory Reaction o This reaction produces a substrate that can enter the citric acid cycle o Glycolysis produces 2 pyruvate molecules so the preparatory reactions occurs twice per glucose molecule o During this reaction, pyruvate is oxidized and CO2 is given off, NAD+ accepts electrons and hydrogen ions forming NADH, and the product forms acetyl-CoA 9 The Citric Acid Cycle o This is a cyclical metabolic pathway located in the matrix of mitochondria o At the start, 2 carbon acetyl group carried by CoA join with a 4 carbon molecule producing 6 carbon citrate molecule. CoA returns to the preparatory stage o During the cycle, acetyl group is oxidized, both NAD+ and FAD accept electrons and hydrogen ions, substrate level ATP synthesis occurs 10 The Electron Transport Chain o This is located in the cristae of mitochondria and is a series of carriers that pass electrons from one to the other. o The electron transport chain is a series of redox reactions that remove the high energy electrons from NADH and FADH2 o The role of oxygen in cellular respiration is to act as the final acceptor of electrons in the electron transport chain o Once NADH has delivered electrons to the electron transport chain, NAD+ is regenerated and can be used again, same with FAD 11 Generating ATP o The complexes use the energy released by oxidation reduction to pump H+ from the mitochondrial matrix into the intermembrane space located between the outer and inner membranes of mitochondrion o The H+ gradient contains a large amount of stored energy that can be used to drive forward ATP synthesis. o The cristae mitochondria contain an ATP synthase complex that allows H+ to return to the matrix 12 Metabolic Fate of Food o Energy Yield from Glucose o Per glucose, there is a net gain of 2 ATP from glycolysis which takes place in the cytoplasm o Most of the ATP produced comes from the electron transport chain and the ATP synthase complex 13 Alternative Metabolic Pathways o When fat is used as an energy source, its break down to glycerol and three fatty acid chains, because glycerol is a carbohydrate it enters the process of cellular respiration during glycolysis o The complete breakdown of glycerol and fatty acids results in many more ATP per fat molecule than does the breakdown of glucose o Acetyl groups can be used to produce fatty acids
