Cellular Respiration Introduction

Cellular Respiration Overview



Key Words

cellular respiration, aerobic, anaerobic, mitochondria, cristae, intermembrane space, matrix, glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation, Krebís cycle, pyruvate, acetyl-CoA, coenzyme A, oxaloacetate, citrate, carbon dioxide (CO2)


As we look more closely at the reactions of cellular respiration, pay close attention to three things:

1. movement of carbon

2. movement of electrons

3. use or production of ATP energy


For cellular respiration you should be able to:

1.Know the 4 metabolic pathways that make up cellular respiration.

2.Explain each of the metabolic pathways that makeup cellular respiration with regard to:

†††† each reactant is used

†††† each product is generated

†††† c.the destination of each product (what happens to each product?)

3.Follow the release of energy (ATP and electrons) from glucose through each step of cellular respiration
