Anaerobic Respiration and RQs – Respiration Ep 4

Anaerobic respiration happens when there isn't enough oxygen present for aerobic respiration to continue. Different types of organism use different pathways - lactate fermentation or alcoholic fermentation. For both pathways, the amount of ATP produced is much lower than in aerobic respiration because the only ATP produced comes from glycolysis (2ATP per glucose molecule). You... Continue Reading →

Oxidative Phosphorylation – Respiration Ep 3

We've reached the final stage of aerobic respiration - oxidative phosphorylation. This step takes place using proteins in the inner mitochondrial membrane. Now we will find out what all the reduced NAD and reduced FAD produced in glycolysis, the link reaction, and the Krebs cycle is used for. Oxidative phosphorylation The coenzymes NAD and FAD...

The Krebs Cycle – Respiration Ep 2

The Krebs cycle has many names. Sometimes it is called the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle or the citric acid cycle. But whatever name you give it, it's an important part of aerobic respiration. In the last article we covered the first two stages of aerobic respiration (glycolysis and the link reaction). We ended the link... Continue Reading →
