either indirectly or directly 39 reactions involved in photosynthesis are the opposite of those involved in cellular respiration 39 Autotrophs sustain themselves without consuming anything that comes from other organisms 39 the producers 39 create C02 and other inorganic molecules 39 Heterotrophs obtain organic material from other organisms 39 the consumers 39 Broad summary of Photosynthesis 39

Reactions Oxidation and Reductions The release of energy stored in organic molecules through the transfer of electrons during chemical reactions The energy released is used to synthesis ATP Redox Principle Redox reactions are chemical reactions that transfer electrons between the reactants Oxidation is the process by which the substance loses electrons Reduction is the process by which the substance gains electrons positive charge is reduced Example molecule of O2 I gt I Oxidation of molecules Respiration molecule of H2O 39 o H o O Organic fuel Oxidative phosphorylation electron transpo

energy Glycolysis the splitting of sugar breaks down glucose into two molecules of pyruvate occurs in the cytoplasm and has two major phases Energy investment phase Energy payoff phase Glycolysis can occur Whether or not 02 is present NADH and pyruvate What happens to it Aerobic respiration breaks down pyruvate into C02 uses electron transport chain With 02 to generate ATP Fermentation passes electrons stored in NADH to 02 Pyruvate is not oxidized and no more ATP is produced occurs When oxygen is not present Types of Fermentation Consists of glycolysis plus reactions that regenerate NAD

phosphorylation after glycolysis and the citric acid cycle NADH and FADHZ have the most energy extracted donate electrons to the electron transport chain this powers ATP synthesis Electron Transport The inner membrane or cristae of the mitochondrion Most of the components are proteins existing in multiprotein complexes carriers alternate between reduced and oxidized states Thursday October 1 2015 accept and donate electrons Electrons reduce free energy as they move down the chain Energy Harvest via NAD glucose and organic molecules are broken down in cellular respiration electrons are transferred to NAD NAD functions as an oxidizing agent Each NADH the reduced form of NAD stores energy to synthesis ATP NADH passes electrons through the electron transport chain the electron transport chain passes electrons through steps instead of through a single explosive reaction 02 pulls electrons down the chain The energy created is used to regenerate ATP Why is there so much stored energy in Hydrocarbons CH bonds are unstable Carbon and hydrogen are not very electronegative loose grip on their shared electrons Electrons attached to an atom With more electronegativity are more stable less potential energy Electrons are transferred from NADH to FADH2 Proteins like cytochromes pass electrons to 02 No ATP is directly generated by the electron transport chain What are the manageable amounts of energy used for the electron transfer in the electron transport chain causes proteins to pump H into the inter membrane space from the mitochondrial matriX H moves through the protein ATP synthase Thursday October 1 2015 a transmembrane protein that harnesses the energy released when H ions move across the mitochondrial membrane against their concentration gradient ATP synthase drives phosphorylation of ATP Example of chemiosmosis the use of energy to drive cellular work Energy that is stored in the PH gradient couples the redox reactions to ATP synthesis H gradient is called protonmotive force showing its capacity to do work ATP Production by cellular respiration during cellular respiration the majority of energy ows glucose 7gt NADH 7gt electron transport chain

Evolutionary importance of Glycolysis Ancient Prokaryotes believed to have used glycolysis before there was oxygen present used only glycolysis to generate ATP Evolutionarily cellular respiration is more recent Glycolysis and the Citric acid cycle connections to other metabolic pathways Major intersections to multiple catabolic anol anabolic pathways Used the catabolic pathway of glucose oxidation but applies to other pI OCGSSGS
