Microbiology 201 9/26 to 9/30 Oxidation of Glucose -complete oxidation takes place in 3 steps 1) Conversion of glucose to pyruvate -3 main pathways in microbes a) Glycolysis -main pathways for glucose breakdown -other sugars fed into this pathway -converted to glucose or derivative -2 stages involved -6 C stage -2 ATP used -3 C stage -ATP and NADH generated -ATP generated via substrate level phosphorylation b) Pentose Phosphate Pathway -more important for biosynthesis than energy production -produces main reductant NADPH -generates 3C-7C sugars -used as substrates for biosynthesis -produces ATP via conversion of glyceraldehyde-3- phosphate to pyruvate -key enzymes: -transketolase -transaldolase c) Entner-Doudoroff Pathway -used in place of glycolysis by many intestinal microbes -produces ATP, NADH, and NADPH 2) Krebs Cycle -pyruvate from glycolysis is initially converted to acetyl coenzyme A before joining cycle -acetyl coenzyme A is derived from decarboxylation of pyruvate by a pyruvate dehydrogenase complex -indirect source of large amounts of ATP -for each acetyl coA -1 FADH 2 3 NADH, 1 GTP/ATP, 2 CO 2 -provides carbon skeleton for biosynthesis 3) Oxidative Phosphorylation -ATP made via oxidation of NADH and FADH 2 -electron transport chain (ETC) accepts electrons from NADH and FADH 2 -O 2s final electron acceptor -aerobic respiration -not O 2s final electron acceptor -anaerobic respiration -energy released in process of electron transport -redox reactions -negative E 0o more positive E 0 -energy is used to pump protons out of cell against concentration gradient -forms a proton potential or proton motive force -can be used to do work -ATP synthesis -using membrane bound ATP synthase complex -process known as oxidative phosphorylation -occurs on: -plasma membrane of bacteria -cristae of mitochondria in eukaryotes -in eukaryotes: -each NADH generates 3 ATP -each FADH g2nerates 2 ATP Fermentation -generates a lot of incompletely oxidized waste products that are excreted from cell -pyruvate does not feed into Krebs cycle -NADH from glycolysis is not oxidized by ETC -low energy process -how to regenerate NAD from NADH: -if NAD is not regenerated -> death of cell -NADH oxidized by an organic molecule such as pyruvate or a derivative -in fermentation reactions, organic molecules can act as both electron donors and electron acceptors -yields a wide variety of products -alcohols, acids, aldehydes -have food and industrial applications -serve as a diagnostic tool of identification of Enteric bacteria Anaerobic Respiration -involves use of an ETC to oxidize NADH and FADH 2 -final electron acceptor is molecule other than O 2 -nitrates -> nitrites -> nitrogen (dissimilatory nitrate reduction) -sulfates -> H 2 (dissimiliatory sulfate reduction) -CO 2> methane (by methanogens) -less productive process than aerobic respiration Redox Couple E 0 NAD/NADH -0.3 NO 3NO 2 +0.4 O 2H 2 +0.8 -more productive than fermentation -no ETC Use of Macromolecules Other Than Glucose a) carbohydrates -broken down via hydrolases and phosphorylases -to monosaccharides b) lipids -lipase breaks into glycerol and fatty acids -glycerol to glycolysis -fatty acids converted acetyl coA or reduces electron carriers c) proteins -proteases broken into amino acids -deaminases amino acids -used in Krebs cycle as substrates Photosynthesis -conversion of light energy to chemical energy (ATP, NADPH) -carbon fixation -CO 2> carbohyrates -production of O 2 -2 parts to photosynthesis 1) light reactions -result in ATP, NADPH, O 2eleased 2) dark reactions (light independent reactions) -carbon fixation Light Reactions -light is harvested by the antenna -composed of proteins and pigments such as: -chlorophyll -carotenoids -in cyanobacteria and photosynthetic eukaryotes: -presence of 2 photosystems -connected via antenna -connected to ETC -ATP formed by an ATP synthase similar to the one used during respiration -photophosphorylation -cyclic: -electron transferred cyclically between photosystem I (PSI) and ETC -ATP generated -non cyclic (linear): -involves PSII, PSI, and ETC -ATP, NADPH, and O ge2erated -ETC localized on thylakoid membrane of chloroplast (eukaryotes) and specialized invaginations of plasma membrane in photosynthetic bacteria Biosynthesis/Anabolism -construction of complex macromolecules from simpler precursors -amino acids -> proteins -monosaccharide -> polysaccharide -requires energy input (ATP) and reductants (usually NADPH) -NADPH from pentose phosphate pathway -use of substrates from amphibolic pathways: -few common precursors generate a large range of end products -NADH- catabolism -NADPH- anabolism -CO 2ixation -basis for accumulation of carbohydrates on earth -occurs during light independent reactions of photosynthesis -performed by autotrophs -pathway known as Calvin Cycle or Reductive Pentose Phosphate Pathway -5 C sugar + CO = 2 3C sugar 2 -via enzyme carboxylase (rubisco) -3 stages 1) carboxylation -C fixation reactions - inorganic C to organic C 2) reduction -consumes ATP and NADPH from light reactions 3) regeneration -produces carbohydrates -regenerates RuBP -similar to oxidative pentose phosphate pathway -6 turns of the Calvin Cycle produces 1 6C sugar -fixation of 1 CO2used 3 ATP and 2 NADPH -light reactions take place on membranes -thylakoids -light independent reactions take place in soluble compartment -bacteria -> cytoplasm -eukaryotes -> stroma of chloroplasts -2 ETC is eukaryotic photosynthetic cells -1 ETC in photosynthetic bacteria -used for photosynthesis and respiration
