Post by biology_is_power » Sun Mar 05, 2006 8:20 am

greetings:

ive been getting alot of different answers from different sources:

is it true that the Krebs cycle produces 2 ADP, ETC- 4 ADP, Glycolysis- 2 ADP, and fermentation 2 adp?

In energy production the Krebs cycle processes acetyl-CoA, so that (in the electron transport chain) hydrogen atoms can be oxidized for energy.

The Krebs cycle metabolizes two-carbon componds to CO2 and H20, also produces one ATP directly from each acetyl group, and transfers hydrogen atoms to the electron transport system

The product of the Krebs cycle is the phosphorylation of 2 ADP, and the release of 4 molecules of CO2.
Today’s discovery is tomorrow’s history.
God bless everyone.

biology_is_power is correct, if you say ATP instead of ADP.
