a look into Cellular Respiration. All organisms need a s ource of energy and a source of Carbon!. What is a heterotroph ?. An organism that needs to CONSUME something for food/energy. What substance is required for cellular respiration to occur?. Glucose. Where does glucose come from?. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation


Heterotrophy- a look into Cellular Respiration

a look into Cellular RespirationAll organisms need a source of energy and a source of Carbon!What is a heterotroph?An organism that needs to CONSUME something for food/energyWhat substance is required for cellular respiration to occur?Glucose

Where does glucose come from?Photosynthesis

SooooIn order for a heterotroph to obtain energy, plants must undergo photosynthesis, producing glucose for use in cellular respiration.B.T.W. Autotrophs also carry out cellular respiration because ATP cannot be stored

Lets Look at the Big Picture

What is the equation for Cellular Respiration? C6H12O6 + 6 O6 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + ATP

Cellular respiration produces ATP. What molecule do you think is needed for cellular RESPIRATION to occur?

UmmmmOxygen?But WAIT! What if theres no oxygen present???

Hello. My name is Saccharomyces cerevisae! My friends call me Yeastanaerobic cellular respiration.NO Oxygen is present!

Step 1: Glycolysis- occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell

Glyco = sugarLysis = splitGlycolysis =The splitting of Glucose

Glycolysis Animation

Lets look at that again!Step 2: Fermentation

ONLY occurs if Oxygen is not present, causing the pyruvates to stay in the cytoplasm and ferment, or rearranges it intoLactic acid

Thats me!And me!And me!LACTIC ACID

Or Ethyl Alcohol and CO2

Hola! Its me againThis is callED ANAEROBIC cellular respiration, or just Fermentation, for short.video


Whoo hoo! We get to practice AEROBIC Cellular Respiration!

which is WAY more efficient!...Lets learn more !!!Step 1: GlycolysisRemember?

The function of the Krebs Cycle- to further the breakdown of the products of glycolysis- releasing CO2 and creating ATP. NAD+ and FAD+ are reduced to create NADH and FADH2, these molecules are used during the next stage

Oxidative Phosphorylation)Oxidative Phosphorylation occurs on the inner mitochondrial membraneNADH and FADH2 (from the Krebs Cycle) are oxidized, releasing H+ that are pumped across the membrane and create ATPand LOTS of it!

Lets see what that looks like!ATP synthase
