Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration

Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration: Respiration without Leg Warmers True or False

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 becausecombustion 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 becauseit 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 producesless ATP than aerobic respiration
