FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. What are the core stages of aerobic respiration? Where does it take place?

Aerobic respiration is an enzymatically meticulous arrival of energy in a stepwise catabolic cycle of whole oxidation of natural food into carbon dioxide and water with oxygen going about as terminal oxidant. It happens by two techniques, normal pathway, and pentose phosphate pathway. The regular pathway is known so in light of the fact that its initial step, called glycolysis, is basic to both high-impact and anaerobic methods of breath. The normal pathway of oxygen-consuming breath comprises three stages – glycolysis, Krebs' cycle, and terminal oxidation. Vigorous breath happens inside mitochondria. The eventual outcome of glycolysis, pyruvate is shipped from the cytoplasm into the mitochondria.

2. What kind of assumption is made during the calculation of the net gain of ATP?

To calculate the net addition of ATP for each glucose particle oxidized possible; however, actually, this can stay just a hypothetical exercise. These estimations can be made distinctly on specific suspicions that:

  • There is a consecutive, methodical pathway working, with one substrate shaping the following and with glycolysis, TCA cycle and ETS pathway following in a steady progression moved into the mitochondria and goes through oxidative phosphorylation.

  • Only glucose is being breathed – no other elective substrates are entering in the pathway at any of the go-between stages.

Yet, these sorts of suppositions are not generally substantial in a living framework; all pathways work all the while and don't occur consistently; substrates enter the pathways and are pulled back from it as and when important; ATP is used as and when required; enzymatic rates are constrained by various methods. Consequently, there can be a net increase of 36 ATP particles during an oxygen-consuming breath of one atom of glucose.
