Oxidation-reduction

oxidation-reduction

A chemical reaction in which an electron is transferred from one molecule to another. The electron-donating molecule is the reducing agent or reductant; the electron-accepting molecule is the oxidizing agent or oxidant. Reducing and oxidizing agents function as conjugate reductant-oxidant pairs or redox pairs.

Re: Number of water molecules produced by cellular respiration

... suggests (C6H12O6 +6 O2 --> 6CO2 +6H2O). So somewhere else 4 water molecules must be consumed...but where is still a mystery. Maybe in the oxidation reactions of pyruvate that from acetyl CoA or maybe hidden within the reactions of glycolysis, The website: https://www.boundless.com/image/the-citric-acid-cycle/ ...

Re: photoautotroph and photoheterotroph difference?

... Chemoautotrophs, chemoheterotrophs. Both types of phototrophs use light as their energy source ( as opposed to Chemotrophs which use oxidation as their energy source). Photoautotrophs fix inorganic carbon from carbon dioxide into organic carbon in the presence of water. (for example ...

... in the transport of viperin to the mitochondria where viperin interacts with mitochondrial proteins that is a part of pathways that catalyze B-oxidation of fatty acids that generate ATP. Studies on viperin suggest that normal B-oxidation is only affected by viperin with the iron-sulfer clusters ...

Re:

Oxidation of one molecule of acetyl coA is the one Krebs cycle. In one Krebs cycle, produce 3 NADH, 1FADH2, 1 GTP 1 NADH = 3 ATP x 3 1FADH2 = 2 ATP x 1 1GTP = 1ATP ______________ Total: 12 ATP U have three acetyl CoA = 3 ...
