Reactant gas of respiration is: Oxygen
The NET number of ATP produced in glycolysis. 2 ATP
The end products of glycolysis are _______. Two molecules of pyruvate.
The name of the substrate when it is at the top of the energy hill and it is said to be "activated". Transition State
What is decarboxylation? The loss of a carbon as carbon dioxide.
Metabolic reactions whereby the products have less energy than the reactants. Exergonic
What are the 3 parts of aerobic respiration? Glycolysis, the Kreb's Cycle, and the ETC Note: Including Glycolysis in this.

The gain of electrons is called _______. Reduction
The uneven distribution of ______ drives the formation of ATP in the ETC. H+ (Hydrogen ions)
In a reversible reaction, if there is more product, which way will the reaction proceed? Toward the production of Reactant.
How many ATP's are produced in both fermentation pathways? 2 ATP only
The loss of electrons is known as _______. Oxidation
How many ATP's are obtained per NADH in the ETC? 3

What are the building blocks of enzymes? Amino Acids
Is oxygen reduced or oxidized at the end of the ETC? Reduced (to form water with H+)
Metallic ions which act to complete the enzyme structure. Cofactors
Which has LESS potential energy, ADP or ATP? ADP
What two gradients exist in the ETC? Charge and H+ concentration gradients

The term for changing the shape of a protein either by high heat or a change in pH. Denaturation
What energy molecule is ONLY produced in the Kreb's Cycle? FADH2
