Text of Mitochondria Cellular Respiration

  • ATP

  • Overview of cellular respiration4 metabolic stagesAnaerobic respiration1. Glycolysisrespiration without O2in cytosolAerobic respirationrespiration using O2in mitochondria2. Pyruvate oxidation3. Krebs cycle4. Electron transport chain(+ heat)

  • What is Cellular Respiration?Step-by-step breakdown of high-energy glucose molecules to release energy Takes place day and night in all living cellsOccurs in stages, controlled by enzymes

  • 1. Glycolysis (splitting of sugar) a. cytosol, just outside of mitochondria.Grooming Phase a. migration from cytosol to matrix.Krebs Cycle (Citric Acid Cycle) a. mitochondrial matrix4. Electron Transport Chain (ETC) and Oxidative Phosphorylationa. Also called Chemiosmosisb. inner mitochondrial membrane.

    Breakdown of Cellular Respiration

  • ATP Energy Currency of CellsAn ATP molecule contains potential energy, much like a compressed spring. When a phosphate group is pulled away during a chemical reaction, energy is released.

  • This cycle is the fundamental mode of energy exchange in biological systems.ATP-ADP Cycle

  • ATP-ADP CycleATP is constantly recycled in your cells. A working muscle cell recycles all of its ATP molecules about once each minute. That's 10 million ATP molecules spent and regenerated per second!

  • Different types of Cellular RespirationAerobic respiration Occurs in the presence of oxygenWhen chemically breaking down glucose completely, this process releases large amounts energy- Releasing carbon dioxide and water as waste products.

    Anaerobic respiration-Occurs if there is a lack of oxygen available for aerobic respiration-Only Glycolysis occurs-Glucose is incompletely broken down -In this type of respiration a lot less energy is -produced and most of it is lost as heat.

  • Glycolysis Breaking down glucose glyco lysis (splitting sugar)

    ancient pathway which harvests energywhere energy transfer first evolvedtransfer energy from organic molecules to ATPstill is starting point for all cellular respirationbut its inefficient generate only 2 ATP for every 1 glucoseoccurs in cytosolIn the cytosol? Why does that make evolutionary sense?

  • Evolutionary perspectiveProkaryotesfirst cells had no organellesAnaerobic atmospherelife on Earth first evolved without free oxygen (O2) in atmosphereenergy had to be captured from organic molecules in absence of O2Prokaryotes that evolved glycolysis are ancestors of all modern lifeALL cells still utilize glycolysisYou mean were related? Do I have to invite them over for the holidays?

  • Substrate-level PhosphorylationP is transferred from PEP to ADPkinase enzymeADP ATPI get it!The PO4 came directly from the substrate!In the last steps of glycolysis, where did the P come from to make ATP?the sugar substrate (PEP)ATP

  • Substrate-Level PhosphorylationATP is formed when an enzyme transfers a phosphate group from a substrate to ADP.Example:PEP to PYR

  • Energy accounting of glycolysis Net gain = 2 ATPsome energy investment (-2 ATP)small energy return (+4 ATP)1 6C sugar 2 3C sugarsglucose pyruvate2x6C3CAll that work! And thats all I get?

  • Is that all there is?Not a lot of energyfor 1 billon years+ this is how life on Earth survivedno O2= slow growth, slow reproductiononly harvest 3.5% of energy stored in glucosemore carbons to strip off = more energy to harvestHard way to make a living! glucose pyruvate6C

  • GlycolysisSplits a glucosemolecule into 2 - 3 Carbon molecules calledPYRUVATE.products: 2 ATP, NADH and pyruvate

  • Glycolysis

  • ATP accounting so farGlycolysis 2 ATP Krebs cycle 2 ATP Life takes a lot of energy to run, need to extract more energy than 4 ATP!Whats the point? A working muscle recycles over 10 million ATPs per secondTheres got to be a better way!
