released as carbon dioxide
Where are the lectron transport chain and ATP synthase located?
inner mitochondrial membrane
Why is the inner membrane of the mitochondrion folded, forming cristae?

intermembrane space of the mitochondrion
How many H+ ions are pumped into the intermembrane space for each molecule of NADH that participates in the electron transport chain?
How many H+ ions are pumped into the intermembrane space for each molecule of FADH2 that participates int he electron transport chain?
What effect would an absence of oxygen have on the electron transport chain/ATP synthase system?
there would be no chemiosmotic production of ATP
Most of the NADH that delievers high-energy electrons to the electron transport chain comes from:
the Krebs cycle
Rotenone is a poison commonly added to insecticides. This molecule binds to the first electron carrier molecule in the electron transport system. Which of the following statements best describes the effect that it has on an insect?
The insect will die because of inadequate ATP production.
Which of the following poisons interferes with cell respiration by making the inner membrane of mitochondria leaky to H+ ions, which prevents the H+ gradient from forming?
dinitrophenol (DNP)
Which of the following poisons inhibits ATP synthase?
A drug is tested int he laboratory and is found to create hooles in both mitochonndrial membranes. Scientists suspect that the durg will be harmful to human cells because it will inhibit:

In alcoholic fermentation, a major problem for yeasts is:
if the alchol they release becomes too concentrated, the yeast will die
Which of the following products are created by alcoholic fermentation?
beer and wine
In humans, the result of anaerobic exercise is the buildup of:
lactic acid
Muscle soreness associated with strenuous exercise is at lease partly due to:
the presence of lactic acid from fermentation by muscle cells
Bacteria that are unable to survive in the presence of oxygen are celled:
strict anaerobes
Yeasts can produce ATP by either fermentation of chemiosmosis, and therefore they are:
facultative anaerobes
In yeast cells:
alcohol is produced after glcolysis
Some friends are tying to make wine in their basement. They have added yeast to a sweet grape juice mixture, and allowed the yeast to grow. After several days they find that sugar levels in the grape juice have dropped, but there is no alcohol in the mixture. The most likely explaination is :
the mixture needs less oxygen. Yeast only produce alcohol in the absence of oxygen.
