2 Life Is Work Living cells require energy from outside sources Some animals, such as the giraffe, obtain energy by eating plants, and some animals feed on other organisms that eat plants

3 Figure 7.1

4 Energy flows into an ecosystem as sunlight and leaves as heat Photosynthesis generates O2 and organic molecules, which are used as fuel for cellular respiration Cells use chemical energy stored in organic molecules to regenerate ATP, which powers work

5 Animation: Carbon Cycle

6 Figure 7.2 Light energy ECOSYSTEM Photosynthesis in chloroplasts Organic + O2 molecules CO2 + H2O Cellular respiration in mitochondria ATP Heat energy ATP powers most cellular work

7 Concept 7.1: Catabolic pathways yield energy by oxidizing organic fuels Catabolic pathways involving electron transfer are central processes to cellular respiration

8 Catabolic Pathways and Production of ATP The breakdown of organic molecules is exergonic Fermentation is a partial degradation of sugars that occurs without O2 Aerobic respiration consumes organic molecules and O2 and yields ATP Anaerobic respiration is similar to aerobic respiration but consumes compounds other than O2

9 Cellular respiration includes both aerobic and anaerobic processes but is often used to refer to aerobic respiration Although carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are all consumed as fuel, it is helpful to trace cellular respiration with the sugar glucose C6H12O6 + 6 O2 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + Energy (ATP + heat)

10 Redox Reactions: Oxidation and Reduction The transfer of electrons during chemical reactions releases energy stored in organic molecules This released energy is ultimately used to synthesize ATP

11 The Principle of Redox Chemical reactions that transfer electrons between reactants are called oxidation-reduction reactions, or redox reactions In oxidation, a substance loses electrons, or is oxidized In reduction, a substance gains electrons, or is reduced (the amount of positive charge is reduced)

12 Figure 7.UN01 becomes oxidized (loses electron) becomes reduced (gains electron)

13 Figure 7.UN02 becomes oxidized becomes reduced

14 The electron donor is called the reducing agent The electron acceptor is called the oxidizing agent Some redox reactions do not transfer electrons but change the electron sharing in covalent bonds An example is the reaction between methane and O2

15 Figure 7.3 Reactants Products becomes oxidized becomes reduced Methane (reducing agent) Oxygen (oxidizing agent) Carbon dioxide Water

16 Redox reactions that move electrons closer to electronegative atoms, like oxygen, release chemical energy that can be put to work

17 Oxidation of Organic Fuel Molecules During Cellular Respiration During cellular respiration, fuel (such as glucose) is oxidized, and O2 is reduced Organic molecules with an abundance of hydrogen, like carbohydrates and fats, are excellent fuels As hydrogen (with its electron) is transferred to oxygen, energy is released that can be used in ATP synthesis

18 Figure 7.UN03 becomes oxidized becomes reduced

19 Stepwise Energy Harvest via NAD+ and the Electron Transport Chain In cellular respiration, glucose and other organic molecules are broken down in a series of steps Electrons from organic compounds are usually first transferred to NAD+, a coenzyme As an electron acceptor, NAD+ functions as an oxidizing agent during cellular respiration Each NADH (the reduced form of NAD+) represents stored energy that is tapped to synthesize ATP

20 Enzymes called dehydrogenases facilitate the transfer of two electrons and one hydrogen ion to NAD+ One hydrogen ion is released in this process

24 Figure 7.UN04 Dehydrogenase

25 NADH passes the electrons to the electron transport chain Electrons are passed to increasingly electronegative carrier molecules down the chain through a series of redox reactions Electron transfer to oxygen occurs in a series of energy-releasing steps instead of one explosive reaction The energy yielded is used to regenerate ATP

27 The Stages of Cellular Respiration: A Preview Harvesting of energy from glucose has three stages Glycolysis breaks down glucose into two molecules of pyruvate in the cytosol Pyruvate oxidation and the citric acid cycle completes the breakdown of glucose in the mitochondrial matrix Oxidative phosphorylation accounts for most of the ATP synthesis and occurs in the inner membrane of the mitochondria

32 Oxidative phosphorylation accounts for almost 90% of the ATP generated by cellular respiration This process involves the transfer of inorganic phosphates to ADP

33 A smaller amount of ATP is formed in glycolysis and the citric acid cycle by substrate-level phosphorylation In this process, an enzyme transfers a phosphate group directly from a substrate molecule to ADP

34 For each molecule of glucose degraded to CO2 and water by respiration, the cell makes up to 32 molecules of ATP

35 Figure 7.7 Enzyme Enzyme ADP P Substrate ATP Product

36 Concept 7.2: Glycolysis harvests chemical energy by oxidizing glucose to pyruvate Glycolysis ( sugar splitting ) breaks down glucose into two molecules of pyruvate Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm and has two major phases Energy investment phase Energy payoff phase The net energy yield is 2 ATP plus 2 NADH per glucose molecule Glycolysis occurs whether or not O2 is present

53 Concept 7.3: After pyruvate is oxidized, the citric acid cycle completes the energy-yielding oxidation of organic molecules In the presence of O2, pyruvate enters the mitochondrion (in eukaryotic cells), where the oxidation of glucose is completed Before the citric acid cycle can begin, pyruvate must be converted to acetyl coenzyme A (acetyl CoA), which links glycolysis to the citric acid cycle

58 The citric acid cycle, also called the Krebs cycle, completes the breakdown of pyruvate to CO2 The cycle oxidizes organic fuel derived from pyruvate, generating 1 ATP, 3 NADH, and 1 FADH2 per turn

59 The citric acid cycle has eight steps, each catalyzed by a specific enzyme The acetyl group of acetyl CoA joins the cycle by combining with oxaloacetate, forming citrate The next seven steps decompose the citrate back to oxaloacetate, making the process a cycle The NADH and FADH2 produced by the cycle relay electrons extracted from food to the electron transport chain

71 Concept 7.4: During oxidative phosphorylation, chemiosmosis couples electron transport to ATP synthesis Following glycolysis and the citric acid cycle, NADH and FADH2 account for most of the energy extracted from food These two electron carriers donate electrons to the electron transport chain, which powers ATP synthesis via oxidative phosphorylation

72 The Pathway of Electron Transport The electron transport chain is located in the inner membrane (cristae) of the mitochondrion Most of the chain s components are proteins, which exist in multiprotein complexes The carriers alternate reduced and oxidized states as they accept and donate electrons Electrons drop in free energy as they go down the chain and are finally passed to O2, forming H2O

73 Electrons are transferred from NADH or FADH2 to the electron transport chain Electrons are passed through a number of proteins including cytochromes (each with an iron atom) to O2 The electron transport chain generates no ATP directly It breaks the large free-energy drop from food to O2 into smaller steps that release energy in manageable amounts

78 Chemiosmosis: The Energy-Coupling Mechanism Electron transfer in the electron transport chain causes proteins to pump H+ from the mitochondrial matrix to the intermembrane space H+ then moves back across the membrane, passing through the protein complex, ATP synthase ATP synthase uses the exergonic flow of H+ to drive phosphorylation of ATP This is an example of chemiosmosis, the use of energy in a H+ gradient to drive cellular work

87 An Accounting of ATP Production by Cellular Respiration During cellular respiration, most energy flows in the following sequence: glucose NADH electron transport chain protonmotive force ATP About 34% of the energy in a glucose molecule is transferred to ATP during cellular respiration, making about 32 ATP There are several reasons why the number of ATP molecules is not known exactly

92 Figure Maximum per glucose: About 30 or 32 ATP

93 Concept 7.5: Fermentation and anaerobic respiration enable cells to produce ATP without the use of oxygen Most cellular respiration requires O2 to produce ATP Without O2, the electron transport chain will cease to operate In that case, glycolysis couples with fermentation or anaerobic respiration to produce ATP

94 Anaerobic respiration uses an electron transport chain with a final electron acceptor other than O2, for example, sulfate Fermentation uses substrate-level phosphorylation instead of an electron transport chain to generate ATP

95 Types of Fermentation Fermentation consists of glycolysis plus reactions that regenerate NAD+, which can be reused by glycolysis Two common types are alcohol fermentation and lactic acid fermentation

96 In alcohol fermentation, pyruvate is converted to ethanol in two steps The first step releases CO2 from pyruvate, and the second step reduces the resulting acetaldehyde to ethanol Alcohol fermentation by yeast is used in brewing, winemaking, and baking

99 In lactic acid fermentation, pyruvate is reduced by NADH, forming lactate as an end product, with no release of CO2 Lactic acid fermentation by some fungi and bacteria is used to make cheese and yogurt Human muscle cells use lactic acid fermentation to generate ATP when O2 is scarce

102 Comparing Fermentation with Anaerobic and Aerobic Respiration All use glycolysis (net ATP = 2) to oxidize glucose and other organic fuels to pyruvate In all three, NAD+ is the oxidizing agent that accepts electrons from food during glycolysis The mechanism of NADH oxidation differs In fermentation the final electron acceptor is an organic molecule such as pyruvate or acetaldehyde Cellular respiration transfers electrons from NADH to a carrier molecule in the electron transport chain

103 Cellular respiration produces about 32 ATP per glucose molecule; fermentation produces 2 ATP per glucose molecule

104 Obligate anaerobes carry out only fermentation or anaerobic respiration and cannot survive in the presence of O2 Yeast and many bacteria are facultative anaerobes, meaning that they can survive using either fermentation or cellular respiration In a facultative anaerobe, pyruvate is a fork in the metabolic road that leads to two alternative catabolic routes

106 The Evolutionary Significance of Glycolysis Glycolysis is the most common metabolic pathway among organisms on Earth, indicating that it evolved early in the history of life Early prokaryotes may have generated ATP exclusively through glycolysis due to the low oxygen content in the atmosphere The location of glycolysis in the cytosol also indicates its ancient origins; eukaryotic cells with mitochondria evolved much later than prokaryotic cells

107 Concept 7.6: Glycolysis and the citric acid cycle connect to many other metabolic pathways Glycolysis and the citric acid cycle are major intersections to various catabolic and anabolic pathways

108 The Versatility of Catabolism Catabolic pathways funnel electrons from many kinds of organic molecules into cellular respiration Glycolysis accepts a wide range of carbohydrates Proteins must be digested to amino acids and amino groups must be removed before amino acids can feed glycolysis or the citric acid cycle

109 Fats are digested to glycerol (used in glycolysis) and fatty acids Fatty acids are broken down by beta oxidation and yield acetyl CoA An oxidized gram of fat produces more than twice as much ATP as an oxidized gram of carbohydrate
