Cellular Respiration And Pi

Decent Essays
Cellular Respiration is a reaction which occurs within cells and organisms and this process allows energy to be stored in the new bonds of glucose which also produces ATP also known as “adenosine triphosphate power”. After this; it will start to produce waste products. ATP is known as adenosine triphosphate and is the main transfer of energy within the molecules in the cell. Once the bond of glucose is broken, the energy is released. This forms ADP + Pi which uses energy to chemically combine through energy being put into it. Carbohydrates are required to complete cellular respiration – they’re broken down to glucose. Glucose is known as the main ingredient in cellular respiration, the digestion of carbohydrates begin in the mouth by an enzyme

    NAD(P)H and FAD(P)H are both an electron carrier produced in cellular respiration and photosynthesis. This two electron carriers then will enter electron chain transport and transfer their electrons to the next electron acceptor until the electrons reach oxygen. These electrons movement will pump H+ (proton) from one compartment to another. In cellular respiration, the electrons movement will cause proton to accumulate in the compartment between the inner and outer membrane of mitochondria. In photosynthesis…

Breaking down the foods use cellular respiration which requires glucose and oxygen and produces carbon dioxide. The faster the metabolism, the more cellular respiration will occur which causes an increase in oxygen to be consumed. The effect of temperature will cause an increase on metabolic rate till a certain point where then the cell will become…

    electron acceptor is necessary to remove electrons so other electrons can go through and to pump out protons (H+) for cellular respiration. An enzyme called ATP synthase provided protons energy to make ATP. Protons can only go through ATP synthase in a controlled way to go to the matrix of a mitochondria. ATP synthase makes ATP from adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and inorganic phosphate (Pi). In a process called oxidative phosphorylation, ATP is formed as a result of transfer of electrons from NADH and…
