... only round hundreds, they are not interested in partiall pathways (like if half of the pyruvate was degraded before it was stopped due to lack of NAD+ and FAD:) Glycolysis will definitelly take part. Probably also the pyruvate decarboxylation. However, the TCA cycle is questionable, because with ...

Is energy released or not released during the reduction of N

I believe energy is not released during the reduction of NAD, but it does not make sense to me because I am of strong belief that all redox reactions are exergonic. For example the reduction of oxygen molecules following the oxidation of glucose releases ...

FADH2 in the Electron Transport Chain?

... my head wrapped around Cellular Respiration (with many thanks to Khan Academy!). In the Electron Transport Chain, it's my understanding that NADH is oxidised, losing its electrons to the reduction of O to H20. In doing so, it changes to a lower energy state and the excess energy is used to ...
