Breakdown of Glucose

Oxidative Phosphorylation: Mechanism and Regulation

Oxidative Phosphorylation: Mechanism and Regulation

Oxidative phosphorylation is the energy-yielding metabolic process that occurs in the mitochondrial membrane or plasma membrane.

Krebs Cycle: Steps and Products

Krebs Cycle: Steps and Products

The Krebs cycle is the aerobic breakdown of complex organic compounds like carbohydrates, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Fate of Pyruvate

Fate of Pyruvate

Fate of pyruvate obtained from the glycolysis depends on the cells that the pyruvate is generated in. The fate could be aerobic or anaerobic.

Glycolysis: Enzymes, Steps, and Products

Glycolysis: Enzymes, Steps, and Products

Glycolysis is a pathway that breaks down glucose into two pyruvates and produces 4 ATP (net gain of 2 ATP) and 2 NADH in the process.
