Electron Transport Chain
Stupid Cellular Respiration project!!! UGHHHHH!!!!
It's so confusing! Hey nerds can you help us understand cellular respiration?
Max: Coenzymes they’re going to toss hydrogens off to each other. The reason they are high energy electrons are because they are traveling at high energy orbits. These hydrogens are going to get passed from one coenzyme to the next, giving off energy and that energy is going to be used to attach Phosphate onto ADP to form ATP (called phosphorylation). There’s enough energy flow here to generate 34 ATP because of all the energy that’s being released from these hydrogens.
Lea: If there's enough oxygen the pyruvate go into the mitochondria because aerobic respiration occurs there. The Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain occur in the mitochondria.
