Keeping this in view, what is the main function of the Krebs cycle quizlet?

The main function of the Krebs cycle is to transfer high energy electrons to the electron transport chain using the carriers used in Krebs cycle.

what occurs during the Krebs cycle? The Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondrial matrix and generates a pool of chemical energy (ATP, NADH, and FADH2) from the oxidation of pyruvate, the end product of glycolysis. Pyruvate is transported into the mitochondria and loses carbon dioxide to form acetyl-CoA, a 2-carbon molecule.

Correspondingly, what is used during the Krebs cycle?

Overview of the Krebs or citric acid cycle, which is a series of reactions that takes in acetyl CoA and produces carbon dioxide, NADH, FADH2, and ATP or GTP.

What is the main purpose of the electron transport chain?

The function of the electron transport chain is to produce a transmembrane proton electrochemical gradient as a result of the redox reactions. If protons flow back through the membrane, they enable mechanical work, such as rotating bacterial flagella.

What are the two main functions of fermentation?

The basic function of fermentation is the production of ethyl alcohol or lactic acid. The basic function of fermentation is the regeneration of NAD+, which allows continued ATP production by glycolysis. Fermentation occurs in the absence of oxygen and does not yeild as much ATP.

What are the products of etc?

Electron carriers are reduced during glycolysis and the citric acid cycle to NADH + H+ and FADH2. These carriers then donate electrons and protons to the electron carrier proteins of the electron transport chain. The final electron acceptor is oxygen. Together with oxygen, electrons and protons form molecules of water.

What is the main purpose of cellular respiration?

The Purpose Cellular Respiration Cellular respiration is the process by which cells in plants and animals break down sugar and turn it into energy, which is then used to perform work at the cellular level. The purpose of cellular respiration is simple: it provides cells with the energy they need to function.

What is the formula for cellular respiration?

C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 -- > 6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O + ATP is the complete balanced chemical formula for cellular respiration.

What are the two primary functions of the electron transport chain?

The electron transport chain is primarily used to send protons across the membrane into the intermembrane space. This create a proton-motive force, which will drive ATP synthase in the final step of cellular respiration to create ATP from ADP and a phosphate group.
