Week 8 Notes Chapter 9 cont Electron Transport Chain ETC the electron transport chain is the inner membrane cristae of the mitochondrion most of the chains components are proteins which exist in multiprotein complexes high energy electrons from NADH and FADH2 are transferred to the top of the chain eectrons drop in free energy as they go down the chain and are nally passed to 02 forming H20 the electron transport chain generates I ATP directly Transoort of Electrons thouoh ETC generates as H gradient eectron transfer in the electron transport chain causes proteins to pump H from the mitochondrial matrix to the intermediate space eectron transport NADH gt 02 leads to the formation of energy stored in an H gradient across a membrane couples the redox reactions of the electron transport chain to ATP synthesis Chemiosmosis the EnerovCouolino Mechanism when H moves back across the inner membrane it passes through a protein complex ATP synthase ATP synthase uses the exergonic ow of H back into the matrix to drive the endergonic phosphorylation of ADP this is an example of chemiosmosis use of energy in a H gradient to drive cellular work 0vera process is called Electron Transoort throuoh ETC generates a H gradient 1 NADH transfers its electrons to a higher point in the ETC than FADH2 2 NADH electrons pass through 3 quotpumping stationsquot gt 3 ATP per NADH 3 FADH2 electrons pass through 2 quotpumping stationsquot gt 2 ATP per FADH2 Summary ATP yield per glucose following complete oxidation and oxidative phosphorylation 1 Glycolysis SLP 2 ATP 2NADH 6 4 ATP gt

36 JUN Fermentation and Anaerobic Respiration allow cells to make ATP in the absence of oxygen most cellular respiration requires 02 to produce ATP without 02 the electron transport chain will cease to operate gycoysis couples with anaerobic respiration or fermentation to produce ATP gycoysis is really ancient process in all organisms Fermentation consists of glycolysis plus reactions that regenerate NAD which can be reused by glycolysis two common types are alcohol fermentation and lactic acid fermentation in alcohol fermentation pyruvate is converted to ethanol in two steps 1 Releases 02 2 Produces ethanol alcoho fermentation by yeast is used in brewing winemaking and baking in lactic acid fermentation pyruvate is reduced by NADH forming lactate as an end product with no release C02 lactic acid fermentation occurs in human muscle cells to generate ATP when 02 is scarce lactic acid fermentation is used by some fungi and bacteria to make cheese and yogurt virtually any food proteins lipids complex carbohydrates can be metabolized via glycolysis and the Krebs cycle and yield energy key intermediates 1 Glycerol 2 Pyruvate 3 AcetylCoA Step 3 in glycolysis important

and likely evolved from photosynthetic bacteria structura organization of these organelles allows for the chemical reactions of photosynthesis hydrophobic and on the leaf surface reduce loss of water stomates are pores in the epidermis they open and close to allow gas movement in and out of the leaf choropasts are found mainly in cells of the mesophyll the interior tissue of the leaf each mesophyll cell contains 3040 chloroplasts a chloroplast has an envelope of two membranes surrounding a dense uid called the stroma contains ribosomes DNA and calvin cycle enzymes are connected sacs in the chloroplast which compose a third membrane system thylakoids may be stacked in columns called grana thylakoid membranes contain light reaction proteins and ETC photosynthesis reverse of cellular respiration is a complex series of reactions that can be summarized as the following equation 6C02 12H20 light energy C6H1206 6C02 6H20 Two Staoes of Photosvnthesis 1 Light reactions Occur in thylakoids Pigments chlorophylls carotenoids absorb light energy ATP is made chemiosmosis photophosphorylation NADIH reducing power is made electrons needed to reduce NADP come from H20 water is split

accessory pigments they protect chlorophylls from photodamage by absorbing excess light an is a graph plotting a pigments light absorption versus wavelength the absorption spectrum of chlorophyll a suggest that violetblue and red light work best for photosynthesis an pro les the relative effectiveness of different wavelengths of radiation in driving a process aerobic bacteria can only grow in the presence of oxygen when a pigment absorbs light it goes from a to an which is unstable higher energy electrons can be passed around when excited electrons fall back to the ground state photons are given off an afterglow called fuorescence is the emission of a photon at a longer wavelength less energy if illuminated an isolated solution of chlorophyll will uorescence giving off light and heat fuorescence is a wasteful process Photosystems capture energy in excited state electrons These pigmentprotein complexes are embedded in thylakoids major components of photosystems are 1 of about 100
