DOES SOMEONE KNOWS THIS???..????

IF WE PROVIDED GLUCOSE MARKED WITH RADIOACTIVE CARBON TO ACELL WHERE WE HAD REMOVED OR INACTIVATED MITOCHONDRIA, WHERE OR IN WHAT STATE WOULD WE FIND THE CARBON?

STILL IN THE CYTOPLASM AS 6-CARBON GLUCOSE
IN THE CYTOPLASM AS 3-CARBON MOLECULES
INSIDE THE MITOCHONDRIA AS 3-CARBON MOLECULES
IN THE CYTOPLASM AS CO2
INSIDE THE NMITOCHONDRIA AS CO2

HEEEELPPP!!!!

Well, glucose is broken down by glycolysis in the cytoplasm into pyruvate and then to CO2 and H2O in the mithocondria. So if there are no mithocondria...

Try again.
This time read the question you asked.... Hint pyruvate is a C3...

Yes correct. Could you tell me how you came to this? Just to make sure that you understood, not that you just picked out a random answer. I'm just playing to be a teacher, so feel free not to answer ;)
