1 A 1 In the process of glycolysis it takes place in the cytoplasm and there are three main things that are put in to the process The first and most important is Glucose There is also two ATP and the enzymes needed to catalyze all the reactions The main product of glycolysis is two pyruvates But there are also other intermediate products These are two reduced coenzymes of NADH formed and four ATP Also in the anaerobic pathway lactic acid is a byproduct In the process of aerobic respiration glycolysis is the first pathway 2 The next pathway in aerobic respiration is the Krebs Cycle This takes place in the mitochondrial matrix In the Krebs Cycle the input included the pyruvate that came out of glycolysis The output in the Krebs Cycle are 3 reduced coenzymes of NADHtwo of which are formed when pyruvate changes to acetyl coA and 2 of FADH2 1 ATP and Carbon Dioxide The Carbon Dioxide is what is exhaled when breathing 3 Oxidative phosphorylation is the last step in aerobic respiration This takes place in the christa in the mitochondrial matrix The products that go into it are 8 reduced coenzymes of NADH and 2 FADH2 These give electrons that travel down the electron transport chain releasing energy and changing ADP into ATP The eight NADH produce 18 ATP and the two FADH2 produces 4 ATP So the output is 22 ATP and the final acceptor of the electron transport chain is water which is the final byproduct B Chemiosmotic ATP Synthesis is the description of how the electrons move down the electron transport chain losing energy that goes to phosphorylate ADP to ATP In aerobic respiration electrons from NADH and FADH move down the electron transport chain H are pumped in to the hydrogen reservoir Next a gradient is formed in the H reservoir The gradient has a lot
