Exam 2

Enzymes are ____ _______? Reaction Specific
_____ are recycled Enzymes
____ ______ cause the reactions to occur by forcing substrates together & forming products Active sites
Heat is a _____ catalyst
Enzymes Biological Catalysts
Catalysts Speed up chemical reactions
___ reactions produce the energy that drives ___ reactions Catabolic Anabolic
Cells need to be ___ ___ to survive Energy Efficient
How do Cells obtain energy? Removing electrons from atoms, so these atoms are part of molecules referred to as electron carriers (A little bit at a time is better than all at once...bursts from ETC)
Biochemical Pathway Sequence of enzyme catalyzed chemical reactions
What temp & pH do enzymes work best at? 98.6 F -> body temp 7 -> neutral pH
What affects enzyme activity? temperature pH inhibitors
Enzymes lower ___ ___ Activation energy
Where is the ATP stored? in PO4 bonds
What is the goal of biochemical pathways? Energy/ATP
Redox Reactions Paired chemical reactions, always occur together
Reduction Addition of electron & uses energy
Oxidation Reduction Removal of an electron from a molecule to reduce energy
Metabolism Sum of all chemical reactions in a living organism
Catabolism Reactions in which things are broken down, yields energy as a result
Anabolism Reactions in which things are synthesized, uses energy
Anabolic Reactions Uses energy & builds things
2 Types of Fermentation Lactic Acid Alcoholic
Fermentation Slower than cellular respiration
Cellular Respiration Formula C6H12O6 + 6O2 -> 6H2O + 6H2O + 6CO2 + Energy Glucose + Oxygen -> Water + Carbon Dioxide + Energy
ATP Synthase Channel protein for hydrogen
Hydrogen Pump Pumps hydrogen across cell membrane Active transport, low -> high
How many ATP does Chemiosmosis produce? 34
What do protons do in Oxidative Phosphorylation? Chemiosmosis
What do electrons do in Oxidative Phosphorylation? ETC
What are the 2 parts of Hydrogen? Electron Proton
What is Oxidative Phosphorylation? ETC & Chemiosmosis
What goes in & is produced by the Kreb's Cycle? In: Pyruvic Acid & Acetyl CoA Out: 2 ATP, 6 NADH, 2 FADH2, 4CO2
What goes in & is produced by glycolysis? In: C6H12O6 Out: 2 ATP, 2 NADH, 2 Pyruvic Acid
Cellular Respiration 1. Glycolysis 2. Kreb's Cycle 3. Electron Transport Chain
Carbohydrate Catabolism Primary source of cellular respiration

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.
