Storyboard Text

  • I'll explain...
  • Why am I here? 
  • You passed out because your body couldn't handle how much energy you were using in a short period of time.
  • What happened was that   your anaerobic pathways were not producing enough ATP for your body when you were running and you weren't getting enough oxygen to produce ATP through the aerobic pathways. I'll explain what is supposed to happen. 
  • Usually, when you start exercising,  glycolysis, which occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell begins producing ATP .   This occurs when  2 ATP molecules donate 2 phosphates to the   glucose, which   turns the 2   ATP into 2 ADP   along   with  splitting into 2    G3P. Then 2 NAD+ molecules are added to the 2 G3P molecules where the  2 NAD+ picks up the hydrogen ions and electrons and turns the 2 NAD+ molecules into  2 NADH molecules. Once the hydrogens  and electrons are removed from the  G3P, it turns into   2 pyruvic acids. This process produces 2 ATP, 2 pyruvate and 2 NADH.

  • Next,  the krebs cycle  occurs in the mitochondria matrix.    The process begins when pyruvate enters the mitochondria through the inter and outer membrane, this is when pyruvic oxidation will occur which produces CO2. The pyruvate turns into acetyl CoA , also called acetyl coenzyme A when it loses a carbon molecule.   Acetyl CoA reacts with an enzyme to produce  citric acid which is a  6 carbon molecule.  Throughout the process, NADH is produced from NAD+ and   FAD+ oxidizes into FADH2 when FAD+  accepts 2 electrons and 2 protons.    This cycle produces NADH and FADH.     
  • 
  • lastly, the  electron transport chain occurs in the  inner membrane space.  It all begins when high    energy electrons from NADH and FAD2   flow down the chain and donate 2 electrons to hydrogen so that a concentration    gradient of hydrogen ions in the intermembrane space will allow   proton pumps to work.  The hydrogen ions are going to travel to a place where there are fewer hydrogen ions and to do that they will travel through the enzyme ATP synthase.   ADP will then pick up phosphates and turn into ATP. The products of this  process are 34 ATP, H2O and CO2.
