Q3 – Study Guide – Cell Respiration & Photosynthesis – 20-21

Cell Respiration and Photosynthesis Test

Cell Respiration and Photosynthesis Test – Wed – March 1st.
I will be adding to this over break but the vocabulary list will not change.

 ATP and Enzyme Form Emailed Keys Molecular structure of ATP
Cellular respiration Chart we filled in class:
Glycolysis Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle Oxidative Phosphorylation 
 OUTSIDE mitochondria
Inside mitochondria (matrix)Inside mitochondria (inner  and outer membrane )
 No CO2 producedCO2 producedNo CO2 produced
 No water producedNo water producedWater formed
1 NADH produced
high energy electrons and protons captured
8 NADH and 2 FADH2 (2 turns )
high energy electrons and protons captured
NAD+ and FAD recycled
high energy electrons and protons delivered
No proton motor forceNo proton motor forceProton motor force 
Glucose becomes 2 pyruvatepyruvate becomes Acetyl CoAhigh energy electrons from reactions of glucose and Acetyl CoA create proton motor force
Requires EnzymesRequires enzymesrequires protein complexes (electron transport system)  AND the ENZYME = ATP Synthase. 
Glucose gets oxidizedGlucose fragments get oxidizedOxygen gets reduced in water
Free electrons in C-H bond takenFree electrons in C-H bond takentightly held electrons in water
Overall Spontaneous 
breaking large molecule (glucose) in smaller components and energy released



G = –

Overall Spontaneous
breaking large molecules (Acetyl CoA) in smaller components and energy released


G = –

Spontaneous because of coupling
Free Energy  +  ADP + Pi —> ATP


Energy from electrons oxidized from glucose  create the proton motor force that produces the ATP

G = +

Chemical oxidation:  Losing electrons (LEO)                     LEO the Lion says GER!!!
Chemical reduction: Gaining electrons (GER)
