aerobic reaction or aneorobic

Post by fugedabowdit » Wed Dec 14, 2005 12:06 am

Does anyone know if this is a aerobic reaction or anaeorbic reaction in the muscle cells?

glucos->pyruvic acid->lactic acid

What are the products of aerobic respiration?

This is the synthisis of ATP

Glycolosis-Anaerobic
Requires 2 ATP to start. You end up with
2 pyruvate
4 ATP
2 NADH

Transition Reaction-Aerobic
Requires the 2 pyruvate from Glycolosis. You end up with
2 NAD
2 AcetylCoA
1 CO2

Citric Acid Cycle-Aerobic
requires 2 AcetylCoA from the transition reaction to start. You end up with
6 NADH
2 ATP
2 FADH2

Electron Transport-Aerobic
Requires all the NADH from all the previous reactions, and all the FADH2 from all of the reactions. You will end up with
For each NADH the cell produces 3 ATP
For each FADH2 the cell produces 2ATP

In short without Oxygen your cells can only produce 4 ATP (2 Net) But with Oxygen your cells can produce between 32 to 34 ATP.
