Oriole IB CellResp

cell resp (aero) vocab & definintions

CELLULAR RESPIRATION process used by living organisms to break down their food (glucose) and release energy (ATP)
high-energy electrons negatively-charged atomic particles that are produced during the first three steps and used in step 4 to make ATP
Electron Transport Chain (System) Step #4 of cellular respiration; uses proteins and carriers in the mitochondria to change high-energy electrons into ATP energy
carbon dioxide (CO2) waste gas of cellular respiration that is given off during steps 2 and 3
ATP molecule of cell energy; the energy 'currency' of a cell; produced during steps 1, 3, and 4 but NOT step 2
glucose the main 'fuel' molecule that 'runs' cellular respiration; it's broken apart during Glycolysis into two pyruvates
water the final waste material of cellular respiration; produced during step 4 as Oxygen and Hydrogen are combined
FADH2 coenzyme carrying two high energy electrons; only produced during step 3 and then used during step 4 to make ATP
pyruvate molecules that result from splitting glucose during step 1; they are changed into Acetyl CoA during step 2
acetyl CoA pyruvates get changed into this during step 2 so they can be used in step 3
proton pumps proteins that are used in step 4 to force Hydrogen protons across the inner membrane of the mitochondria
Hydrogen protons pumped across the inner membrane of the mitochondria during step 4 so that ATP can be made
Coenzyme A used during step 2 and attached to the acetyl group so it can be carried to and used in step 3
oxygen (O2) element that must be present for steps 2, 3, and 4 to work; used in step 4 to make water
enzymes these 3-D proteins are necessary for all four steps of cellular respiration to work at normal cell temperatures
mitochondria (matrix) location in the cell where steps 2, 3 and 4 take place; the 'powerhouse' of the cell
OAA (oxaloacetate) the beginning material that step 3 always starts with; it is reproduced again at the end of that step
Glycolysis Step #1 of cellular respiration; literally means that sugar is being split apart
NADH coenzyme that carries a high energy electron; produced during steps 2 and 3, then used during step 4 to make ATP
Intermediate (Link) Reaction Step #2 of cellular respiration; changes pyruvates into acetyl CoA so they can be used in step 3
cytoplasm watery insides of a cell; where step 1 of cellular respiration takes place
Krebs Cycle Step #3 of cellular respiration; starts with OAA, attaches Acetyl CoA, then releases NADH, FADH2, CO2, and remakes OAA
ATP synthase enzyme used during step 4 to put together the energy molecules of ATP; works when Hydrogen protons move through it

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
