Re:

... 200 ATPs from glycolysis (2 per 1 Glc) and could be additional 200 from TCA (1 per 1 acetyl-CoA). The TCA or Krebs cycle only occurs if the ETC(electron transport chain) can occur and that is only with oxygen(and nothing keeping oxygen from binding such as cyanide). so the answer to your question ...

Living or not? (viruses,viroids and prions).

... its lifestyle, showing that it behaved much like Mimivirus, forming similar structures within its host cell that could only be distinguished using electron microscopy. They also sequenced its entire genome, which turned out to be the largest virus genome yet completed: 1.26 million base pairs of ...

Re: Are carbohydrates hydrophobic?

... molecules, according to “Carbohydrates (1)”. Polar means that the molecules have "dipoles". This is due to the unbalanced charge of electrons in either part of the molecule. Remembering the principle that opposite charges are attracted, polar molecules have a weak attraction to other ...
