The amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1g of water by 1 degree Celsius. V. Calorie a. 1,000 calories or 1 kilocalorie (kcal) b. the capital C in Calorie indicates kilocalorie c. the Calorie is the common unit of energy used in food nutrition labels. COUNTING CALORIES I. Glycogen a. A complex animal carbohydrate, made up of linked chains of glucose molecules, that stores energy for short term use. II. Triglycerides a. A type of lipid found in fat cells that stores excess energy for long term use. PUTTING FOOD TO WORK I. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) a. The molecule that cells use to power energy requiring functions. b. The cells energy currency. II. Aerobic Respiration a. A series of reactions that occurs in the presence of oxygen and converts energy stored in food into ATP. III.Glycolysis a. A series of reactions that breaks down sugar into smaller units b. Glycolysis takes place in the cytoplasm and is the first stage of both aerobic respiration and fermentation. IV. Citric Acid Cycle a. A set of reactions that takes place in mitochondria and helps extract energy from food b. The second stage is aerobic respiration V. NAD+ a. An electron carrier b. NAD+ can accept electrons, becoming NADH in the process VI.Electron Transport Chain a. A process that takes place in mitochondria and produces the bulk of ATP during aerobic respiration b. The third stage is aerobic respiration WHEN OXYGEN IS SCARCE I. Fermentation a. A series of chemical reactions that takes place in the absence of oxygen and converts some of the energy stored in food into ATP b. Fermentation produces far less ATP than does aerobic respiration CURBING CULTURE I. Trans Fat a.
