  • Breathing versus Cellular RespirationBreathing: physical process that allows animals and humans to come into contact with gases in the air

    Cellular respiration: chemical process that releases energy from organic compounds (food), gradually converting it into energy that is stored in ATP molecules

  • Correlation between a campfire and Cellular RespirationAnalyzing a campfire can clarify your understanding of cellular respiration. A campfire breaks chemical bonds in wood, releasing stored energy as light and heatCellular respiration breaks chemical bonds in glucose, releasing stored energy and transferring some to 38 ATP; some energy is lost as heat.

  • Chemical Pathways Food is the raw material that provides the energy for your body to function Cells use food to synthesize new molecules to carry out their life processes

  • Cells do not BURN glucose, they slowly release energy from it and other food compounds through several pathways (processes)1st pathway glycolysis: releases only a small amount of energy (2 net ATP)If oxygen present, it will lead to two other pathways that release a lot of energy: Krebs cycle & Electron Transport ChainIf oxygen absent glycolysis is followed by a different pathway: Alcoholic Fermentation or Lactic Acid Fermentation

  • Overview of Cellular RespirationIn presence of oxygen (aerobic) glycolysis is followed by: ______________ ______________ Krebs CycleElectron Transport Chain

  • All three combined make up Cellular Respiration: Glycolysis + Krebs Cycle + Electron Transport ChainProcess that releases energy by breaking down food molecules in the presence of oxygen

    Each of these 3 stages captures some of the chemicalenergy available in food molecules and uses it to produce ATPEquation for cellular respiration:6O2 + C6H12O6 ------- 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy (ATP)oxygen + glucose ----- carbon dioxide + water + energy123

  • What is the process of glycolysis????

  • GlycolysisProcess takes place in the cytosol of the cytoplasm outside of mitochondria; coverts glucose with the help of 2 ATP molecules and eventually releases 4 ATP molecules; for a net gain of 2 ATP molecules.

  • ATP & NADH production in GlycolysisStep 1: breaks 1 molecule of glucose in half, producing 2 molecules of pyruvic acid (a 3-carbon compound)

    Step 2: 2 NAD+ ;electron carrier accepts 4 high-energy electrons transfers themto 2 NADH molecules and 2 H+ thus passing the energy stored in the glucose

    Step 3: 4 ADP added producing 4 ATP

    Step 4: 2 remaining pyruvic acids enter Krebs Cycle in presence of oxygen; IF no oxygen another pathway is followedNAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide)2 NADH & 2 H+ produced 2 ATP used up become 2 ADP4 ATP producedNet gain =2 ATP

  • Glycolysis is a fast processCells produce thousands of ATP molecules in a few millisecondsGlycolysis alone DOES NOT require oxygenIt can supply chemical energy to cells when oxygen is NOT available

    However if a cell generates large amounts of ATP from glycolysis it can run into problems a. the cells available NAD+ molecules become filled up with electrons b. glycolysis shuts down, cannot proceed without available NAD+ molecules c. ATP production stops

  • Anaerobic to Aerobic Respiration

    Glycolysis evolved before the other stages of cellular respiration; other stages need oxygenNo oxygen in Earths atmosphere when life first evolved about 3.5 to 4 b.y.a. Without oxygen anaerobic respiration2 or 3 billion years ago, oxygen was gradually added to the atmosphere by early photosynthetic bacteria; period the oxygen catastrophe aerobic organisms

  • Lets look at the pathway that follows gycolysis with the presence of oxygen..aerobic respiration

  • BUT FIRSTMitochondrion StructureMitochondrion has two separate membranes: inner and outer membrane.Three compartments: intermembrane space, cristae space, and matrix

  • AEROBIC RESPIRATION:The Krebs Cycle and Electron TransportEnd of glycolysis 90% of chemical energy from glucose still unused, locked in high-energy electrons of pyruvic acidExtracted by worlds most powerful electron receptor Krebs and Electron Transport require oxygen thus they are aerobic processesOXYGEN

  • The Krebs Cycle 1. 2nd stage of cellular respiration 2. Named after Hans Krebs, British biochemist in 1937 3. Here pyruvic acid is broken down into carbon dioxide in a series of energy-extracting reactions 4. Citric acid is the 1st compound formed in this series of reactions, so Krebs is sometimes called the Citric or Citric Acid Cycle.

  • Pyruvic acid enters from glycolysis;One carbon removed = CO2 formed

    NAD+ again changed to NADH

    CoA joins remaining 2 carbons =Acetyl-CoA

    Acetyl-CoA added to 4 carbon Compound = Citric acid (6-C)

    Citric acid broken down to 5-carbonthen 4 carbon; more CO2 released

    Along the way more NADH and FADH2 formed

    One molecule of ATP also made

    2 turns & 2 pyruvic acid (from glycolysis) yield:10 NADH (2 from glycolysis)2 FADH24 ATP (2 from glycolysis)

    Cycle starts anew

  • Uses for the products of the Krebs CycleCarbon dioxide is exhaled (waste product)ATP can be used for cellular activitiesHigh-energy electrons (stored in NADH & FADH2) can be used to make huge amounts of ATP in the presence of oxygen

  • Electrons from Krebs cycle are passed to electron transport chain by NADH & FADH2At end of the chain an enzyme combines electrons from the electron chain with H+ ions and oxygen to form waterEach time 2 high-energy electrons transport down the electron chain, their energy is used to transport H+ ions across the membraneH+ ions build up in intermembrane space it is now positively charged, other side of membrane negatively charged (DISPLAY) Electrochemical gradient (chemiosmotic gradient) created for ATP synthase to work (OFF)ATP synthase converts ADP into ATP (DISPLAY)

  • The Total ATP production of Aerobic CRHow much chemical energy comes from one molecule of glucose??Absence of oxygen:Only 2 ATP molecules from glycolysisPresence of oxygen:2 net ATP molecules from glycolysis36 more ATP molecules from Krebs Cycle and electron transport

    These 38 ATP molecules represent 38% of the total energy of glucose, remaining 62% is released as heat, thus your body feels warmer after vigorous exercise and does not freeze in winter.

  • Lets look at the pathway that follows gycolysis without the presence of oxygen..anaerobic respiration

  • Anaerobic Respiration: FermentationThis occurs after glycolysis when oxygen absent, thus anaerobic processFermentation releases energy from food molecules in absence of oxygenIn this process cells convert NADH to NAD+ by passing high-energy electrons back to pyruvic acidNow glycolysis has NAD+ and can continue producing ATPThere are 2 types of fermentation:Alcoholic fermentationLactic acid fermentation

  • Anaerobic and aerobic respiration share the glycolysis pathway. If oxygen is absent, fermentation may take place, producing lactic acid or ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide. Products of fermentation still contain chemical energy, and are used widely to make foods and fuels.

  • Alcoholic Fermentation Yeast and a few other microorganisms use alcoholic fermentation, forming ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide as wastesEquation for alcoholic fermentation: pyruvic acid + NADH ethyl alcohol + CO2 + NAD+

  • Lactic Acid FermentationMany cells convert accumulated pyruvic acid from gycolysis to lactic acid; lactic acid fermentation regenerates NAD+ so glycolysis can continueEquation for lactic acid fermentation: pyruvic acid + NADH lactic acid + NAD+4. When your body cannot supply enough oxygen to muscle tissues during exercise, this is produced 5. Without oxygen the body is unable to produce all the ATP it requires, so lactic acid fermentation takes over

  • Running, swimming, or riding a bike as fast as you can = large muscles in your legs and arms that quickly run out of oxygenmuscles begin to rapidly produce ATP by lactic acid fermentation.The buildup of lactic acid fermentation causes a painful burning sensation making your muscles feel sore

    How do you stop it?????NEED TO INTAKE OXYGEN

  • Energy and ExerciseInitially body uses ATP which is already available in musclesThen new ATP made by Lactic Acid Fermentation and Cellular RespirationEventually energy supply runs out A. Quick Energy 1. ATP in muscles only lasts a few seconds 2. ATP from lactic acid fermentation lasts about 90 seconds - this then creates a by-product (lactic acid) which the body must get rid of, the body releases it by panting heavily (intake of oxygen)

  • B. Long-Term Energy - exercise lasting longer than 90 seconds utilizes cellular respiration to generate a continuous supply of ATP - cellular respiration releases energy slower than fermentation, thus athletes can pace themselves - body stores energy in muscles and tissues in the form of glycogen (carbohydrate) -- stores of glycogen usually lasts for 15-20 minutes of activity, then the body starts to break down other molecules like fat for energy HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO ACTIVE BEFORE YOU START TO BURN FAT?????17-22 minutes

  • Aerobic vs. Anaerobic Respiration: A Comparison

    Advantages of Aerobic RespirationMajor advantage more energy released Enough energy to produce up to 38 ATP

    Advantages of Anaerobic RespirationLets organisms live in places where there is little or no oxygenQuickly produces ATP

  • Relationship between Cellular Respiration and PhotosynthesisEquation for Cellular Respiration:6O2 + C6H12O6 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy (ATP)Equation for Photosynthesis:6CO2 + 6H2O + energy (sunlight) 6O2 + C6H12O6

  • Lesson Summary In the two to three billion years since photosynthesis added oxygen to earths atmosphere, life has become mostly aerobic. Some organisms and types of cells retain the older, anaerobic pathways for making ATP;these pathways comprise anaerobic respiration or fermentation.Muscle cells can continue to produce ATP when O2 runs low using lactic acid fermentation, but muscle fatigue and pain may result.Both alcoholic and lactic acid fermentation pathways change pyruvate in order to continue producing ATP by glycolysis.Aerobic respiration is far more energy-efficient than anaerobic respiration. Aerobic processes produce up to 38 ATP per glucose. Anaerobic processes yield only 2 ATP per glucose.

    *A working muscle cell converts ADP into ATP at a rate of about 10 million molecules per second. What is the energy source?????Chemical energy stored in food.*Glycolysis Greek glucose means sweet (glucose)Latin lysis means process of loosening or decomposing

    Glycolysis breaking glucoseSo what would hydrolysis mean??? Breaking with water

    Where does the glucose used in respiration come from?From the breakdown of carbohydrates by cells

    *Click to show definition of cytosol and cytoplasm for note sheetsTop right corner mitochondriaHave them answer question in their packet about what else is produced?**Byabillion years agoExplain oxygen catastropheno photsynthetic organisms at the timeAccording to the endosymbiotic theory, engulfing of some of these aerobic bacteria led to eukaryotic cells with mitochondria, and multicellularity followed. After that, living things could use oxygen to break down glucose and make ATP. Today we live in an atmosphere which is 21% oxygen and most organisms make ATP with oxygen. They follow glycolysis with the Krebs cycle and electron transport chain to make more ATP than by glycolysis alone. Cellular respiration that proceeds in the presence of oxygen is called aerobic respiration.

    *Have them label structures in packet then do following notes:The inner membrane folds into cristae which divide the organelle into three compartmentsintermembrane space (between inner and outer membrane), cristae space (formed by infoldings of the inner membrane), and matrix ( space enclosed by the inner membrane). The second stage of cellular respiration, the Krebs Cycle, takes place in the matrix. The third stage, Electron Transport Chain, takes place on the inner membrane.***In eukaryotes, electron transport chain is a series of carrier proteins located in the inner membrane of the mitochondrionIn prokaryotes, same chain only in the cell membrane**This caus...
