  • Hey duuuude wanna learn about Cellular Respiration? You don't have a choice it all starts with Glycolysis.
  • In Glycolysis the cell starts with glucose and through pyruvate oxidation it makes pyruvic acid, NADH, and FADH2 and a net total of 2 ATP. This happens in the cytoplasm of a cell
  • Before entering the Krebs Cycle, the pyruvic must be converted into Acetyl CoA  with an enzyme called Coenzyme A. This Acetyl CoA then combines with a 4 carbon compound to make Citric Acid
  • After this citric acid is made that acid goes through a process twice and in both times it creates 1 CO2 molecule and 1 NADH. Also in the second time 1 ATP is made. Then this now 4 carbon molecule is oxidized and a NADH & FADH2 is made. This happens twice for each glucose molecule. This produces 2 ATP. This occurs in the Matrix
  • After this the NADH and FADH2 travel to the Electron Transport Chain. (ETC) Here those transport molecules give up their protons and electrons into the chain. The electrons will then power ion pumps to let the protons into the intermembrane space this builds a gradient, activates ATP synthase and produces 34 ATP in the inner membrane,
  • Chemical Formula: C6H12O6 + 6O2 ====> 6CO2 + 6H2O (and 38 ATP)
  • So that's how Aerobic Cellular Respiration works.
