Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration

Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration


1. Under anaerobic conditions, oxidizing glucose can result in what waste product?→Lactic acid
2. What compound appears at both the beginning and the end of the citric acid cycle?→Ethanol
3. What metabolic process is the most widespread among all living organisms?→Glycolysis
4. What molecule accepts the electrons from NADH in fermentation?→ATP
5. Oxygen is necessary for cellular respiration because→combustion cannot take place without oxygen
6. In the citric acid cycle, what occurs?→Acetyl-CoA enters the cycle, and ATP, NADH, and FADH2 are produced.
7. The citric acid cycle is so named because→it produces citric acid as an end product
8. What process releases carbon dioxide (CO2)?→A and C
9. Which of the following is true?→All living things use oxygen during respiration.
10. Fermentation produces→less ATP than aerobic respiration
