This session will outline the cellular mechanisms for harvesting energy from glucose and related sugars. It will briefly outline glycolysis as a mechanism to generate ATP and discuss the fate of the pyruvate produced in glycolysis under anaerobic and aerobic conditions.
Watch the lecture video excerpt
In the process of glycolysis, one glucose molecule is oxidized to form 2 pyruvates and which of the following?
In a yeast cell under anaerobic conditions, the NADH (from glycolysis) donates electrons to __________, which produces _________ additional ATP?
In a yeast cell under anaerobic conditions, NADH donates electrons to pyruvate. Although this reaction does not produce any additional ATP, it regenerates the NAD+ needed for subsequent rounds of glycolysis.
In a yeast cell under aerobic conditions, pyruvate is oxidized to Acetyl CoA which enters the _________. NADH donates electrons to __________. The total ATP/glucose produced from these processes and glycolysis is __________.
