Overview


Cell Respiration [oxidation]
reactants products
oxidation of C
C6H12O6 + 6 O2 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + + 686 kcal
reduction of O
energy capture reaction
36 ADP + 36 Pi + - 263 kcal 36 ATP
- 423 kcal waste heat

Metabolic pathways


ATP

the energy 'currency' of cells

glycolysis

in the cytoplasm, outside of mitachondrion

All known organisms which utilize sugar as a energy source use glycolysis


citric acid cycle

inside the mitachondrion

All known organisms which process energy aerobically use citric acid cycle


electron transport system

in cristae of mitachondrion

All known organisms use this electron transport system
