What are the inputs to respiration?
Unit 5: Photosynthesis & Cell Respiration
|What are the inputs of cellular respiration?||Glucose, oxygen|
|What are the outputs of cellular respiration?||Carbon dioxide, water, energy (ATP)|
|What is the site of cellular respiration?||Mitochondria|
Where does photosynthesis and cellular respiration take place in the cell?
Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts, whereas cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria.
What is the common product of photosynthesis and respiration?
Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some bacteria, and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, which cellular respiration converts into ATP, the “fuel” used by all living things.
Does Chemiosmosis occur in cellular respiration?
The actual production of ATP during cellular respiration is done through chemiosmosis. (See Chapter 4). Chemiosmosis is the transfer of protons from one compartment to another through special channels within the mitochondria membranes. Pumping creates a proton gradient (H+).
What accounts for the different number of ATP molecules that are formed through cellular respiration?
What accounts for the differing number of ATP molecules formed by cellular respiration. Because the electron transport chain composition is different between species, different organisms will produce different amounts of ATP by using their respective electron transport chains.
What are the two electron carriers of cellular respiration?
There is a pair of electron carriers that are very important for cellular respiration. They are NAD +start Superscript, plus, and end superscript (nicotinamide dinucleotide), and FAD (flavin-adenine dinucleotide). The chemical structures of NADH and NAD+.
Why does cellular respiration take place?
Cells use cellular respiration to extract energy by breaking down the bonds between glucose and other food molecules. The cells can store the energy as ATP (adenosine tripophosphate).
How do prokaryotes do cellular respiration?
Many prokaryotes are simple cells, such as bacteria, that can carry out aerobic cellular respiration. These cells can move electrons back-and-forth across their cell membrane. The other types of prokaryotes can’t use oxygen for cellular respiration so they do anaerobic respiratory.
