Re: Number of water molecules produced by cellular respiration

... show is that during the Kreb's cycle and specifically during the combination reaction of acetylCoA plus oxaloacteate to form citrate via citrate synthase that a single water molecule is consumed. That is one additional water consumption per acetyl CoA then typically illustrated or 2 water consumptions ...

Role of membranes in synthesis of ATP in cellular respiratio

... to regulate hydrogen levels. ATP production occurs because of chemiosmosis, the diffusion of hydrogen ions across the membrane using the ATP synthase (a transport protein). This protein uses the power of hydrogen ions sandwiched between the inner and outer membranes, as a result of the electron ...

Chemiosmosis, the movement of hydrogen ions to make ATP, was

... chain E. Phosphorylation (the addition of phosphate to ADP) occurs as a result of the movement of hydrogen ions across the membrane through ATP synthase F. Glucose is oxidized in cellular respiration while water is oxidized in photosynthesis, which provides some of the hydrogen ions. G.A greater ...
