Cellular Respiration by Mind Map: Cellular Respiration

1. Glycolysis

1.1. During Glycolysis, glucose is broken down into 2 molecules of pyruvic acid

1.1.1. ATP and NADH are produced as part of the process. ATP is made and also used in the cycle.

1.1.1.1. Four High-energy electrons are passed to the carrier NAD+ to produce NADH. NADH carries these electrons to the transport chain.

1.2. Four High-energy electrons are passed to the carrier NAD+ to produce NADH. NADH carries these electrons to the transport chain.

2. Krebs Cycle

2.1. Pyruvic acid to Pyruvic acid from glycolysis is used to make carbon dioxide, NADH, ATP, and FADH2.

2.1.1. Gylcolysis produces 2 molecules or pyruvic acid from each glucose molecules, the krebs cycle "turns" twice for each glucose that enters glycolysis.

3. Electronic Transport Chain

3.1. An electron transport chain is a series of compounds that transfer electrons from electron donors to electron acceptors via redox reactions, and couples this electron transfer with the transfer of protons across a membrane. This creates an electrochemical proton gradient that drives ATP synthesis, or the generation chemical energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate

3.2. NADH dehydrogenase (complex I) - FMN - Ist. Succinate coenzyme Q reductase (complex II) Coenzyme Q (CoQ) (also called ubiquinone) Cytochrome bc1 complex (complex III) Cytochrome c (Cyt c) Cytochrome oxidase (complex IV) Oxygen - Last
