Cellular Respiration: Harvesting Chemical Energy Chapter 9 Slide 2 Cellular Respiration Metabolic pathways that release stored energy by breaking down complex molecules are called catabolic pathways. There are two types of catabolic processes- fermentation and cellular respiration. Slide 3 Catabolic Pathways Fermentation Is the partial degradation of sugars that occurs without the help of oxygen Cellular Respiration This is the most efficient and prevalent catabolic pathway, in which oxygen is consumed as a reactant along with organic fuel. Catabolic pathways yield energy by oxidizing organic fuels The breakdown of organic molecules is exergonic Slide 4 Energy flow and Recycling Light energy ECOSYSTEM CO 2 + H 2 O Photosynthesis in chloroplasts Cellular respiration in mitochondria Organic molecules + O 2 ATP powers most cellular work Heat Energy Respiration harvests energy stored in organic molecules to generate ATP, Which powers most cellular work. The waste products are used by chloroplasts For photosynthesis. Thus chemicals essential to life are recycled. Energy Flows into an ecosystem as sunlight and leaves as heat Slide 5 Redox Reaction Example of Redox Reaction Na + Cl Na + + Cl becomes oxidized (loses electron) becomes reduced (gains electron) Some redox reactions Do not completely exchange electrons Change the degree of electron sharing in covalent bonds Slide 6 Redox Reactions Redox reactions Transfer electrons from one reactant to another by oxidation and reduction In oxidation A substance loses electrons, or is oxidized In reduction A substance gains electrons, or is reduced Slide 7 Cellular Respiration During cellular respiration Glucose is oxidized and oxygen is reduced C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + Energy becomes oxidized becomes reduced Slide 8 Stepwise Harvest Cellular respiration Oxidizes glucose in a series of steps Electrons from organic compounds Are usually first transferred to NAD +, a coenzyme NADH, the reduced form of NAD + Passes the electrons to the electron transport chain If electron transfer is not stepwise A large release of energy occurs As in the reaction of hydrogen and oxygen to form water (a) Uncontrolled reaction Free energy, G H2OH2O Explosive release of heat and light energy H 2 + 1 / 2 O 2 Slide 9 Electron Transport Chain The electron transport chain Passes electrons in a series of steps instead of in one explosive reaction Uses the energy from the electron transfer to form ATP Slide 10 2 H 1 / 2 O 2 (from food via NADH) 2 H + + 2 e 2 H + 2 e H2OH2O 1 / 2 O 2 Controlled release of energy for synthesis of ATP ATP Electron transport chain Free energy, G (b) Cellular respiration + Slide 11 Processes of Cellular Respiration Respiration is a cumulative function of three metabolic stages Glycolysis The citric acid cycle Oxidative phosphorylation Glycolysis Breaks down glucose into two molecules of pyruvate The citric acid cycle Completes the breakdown of glucose Oxidative phosphorylation Is driven by the electron transport chain Generates ATP Slide 12 Electrons carried via NADH Glycolsis Glucose Pyruvate ATP Substrate-level phosphorylation Electrons carried via NADH and FADH 2 Citric acid cycle Oxidative phosphorylation: electron transport and chemiosmosis ATP Substrate-level phosphorylation Oxidative phosphorylation Mitochondrion Cytosol Slide 13 Both glycolysis and the citric acid cycle Can generate ATP by substrate-level phosphorylation Enzyme ATP ADP Product Substrate P + Slide 14 Glycolysis Glycolysis harvests energy by oxidizing glucose to pyruvate Glycolysis Means splitting of sugar Breaks down glucose into pyruvate Occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell Glycolysis consists of two major phases Energy investment phase Energy payoff phase Glycolysis Can produce ATP with or without oxygen, in aerobic or anaerobic conditions Couples with fermentation to produce ATP Slide 15 Glycolysis Citric acid cycle Oxidative phosphorylation ATP 2 ATP 4 ATP used formed Glucose 2 ATP + 2 P 4 ADP + 4 P 2 NAD + + 4 e - + 4 H + 2 NADH + 2 H + 2 Pyruvate + 2 H 2 O Energy investment phase Energy payoff phase Glucose 2 Pyruvate + 2 H 2 O 4 ATP formed 2 ATP used 2 ATP 2 NAD + + 4 e + 4 H + 2 NADH + 2 H + The energy input and output of glycolysis Slide 16 Dihydroxyacetone phosphate Glyceraldehyde- 3-phosphate H H H H H OH HO CH 2 OH H H H H O H OH HO OH P CH 2 O P H O H HO H CH 2 OH P O CH 2 O O P HO H H OH O P CH 2 C O CH 2 OH H C CHOH CH 2 O O P ATP ADP Hexokinase Glucose Glucose-6-phosphate Fructose-6-phosphate ATP ADP Phosphoglucoisomerase Phosphofructokinase Fructose- 1, 6-bisphosphate Aldolase Isomerase Glycolysis 1 2 3 4 5 CH 2 OH Oxidative phosphorylation Citric acid cycle Glucose enters the cell and is phosphorylated by the enzyme hexokinase which transfers a phosphate group fro ATP to sugar The charge of the phosphate group traps the sugar in the cell because the plasma membrane is impermeable to membranes. Phosphorylation makes glucose more reactive chemically.
