1. Glycolysis

1.1. Glucose

1.2. Pyruvate

1.3. ADP

1.4. ATP

1.5. NADH

1.6. NAD+

1.7. Cytoplasm

1.8. First set of reactions. "Sugar breaking". Transforms glucose. The end result is 2 molecules of a 3-carbon molecule called pyruvic acid. During glycolysis, 1 molecule of glucose, a 6 carbon compound, is transformed into 2 molecules of pyruvic acid, a 3 carbon compound. As the bonds in glucose are broken, energy is released. NADH is a high electron transport carriers that go to the E.T.C. ATP goes off to do work in the cell

2. Kerbs Cycle

2.1. Pyruvate

2.2. ADP

2.3. ATP

2.4. NADH

2.5. NAD+

2.6. Cytoplasm

2.7. Mitchondria

2.8. CO2

2.9. FAD

2.10. FADH2

2.11. In the presence of oxygen, pyruvic acid produced in glycolysis passes to the second stage. Pyruvic acid is broken down into co2 in a series of energy-extracting reactions.

3. Electron Transport Chain

3.1. ADP

3.2. ATP

3.3. NADH

3.4. NAD+

3.5. Mitchondria

3.6. O2

3.7. H+ ions

3.8. Water

3.9. FAD

3.10. FADH2

3.11. ATP synthase

3.12. NADH molecules can enter the mitochondrion, where they join the NADH and FADH2 generated by the krebs cycle. The electrons are then passed from all those carriers to the E.T.C. The E.T.C. uses the high-energy electrons from glycolysis and the krebs clyle to convert ADP into ATP.
