About This Chapter
1. Effect of Temperature on Cellular Respiration
In this lesson, we'll explain the basic steps of cellular respiration. Then we'll go over why temperature has an effect on this process, what the optimal temperature is for yeast and how you can test this at home.
2. Electron Carriers in Cellular Respiration
In this lesson, review the basics of cellular respiration, then see how electron carriers are used to make energy. We'll look at NADH, FADH2, proteins in the electron transport chain, and the ultimate electron acceptor, oxygen.
3. Products of Cellular Respiration
In this video, we'll go over the process of cellular respiration and look at the products made during each of its three steps, as well as the end products of the chemical reactions.
4. Pyruvate in Cellular Respiration
What form of energy do cells use? How do they make this energy? What does the food you eat have to do with any of this? This lesson addresses these questions by examining the role of pyruvate in cellular respiration.
5. Role of Glucose in Cellular Respiration
This lesson is on the role of glucose in cellular respiration. In this lesson, we'll explain what cellular respiration is and what we need to start with to get the end products. We'll specifically look at the importance of glucose in this process.
6. Role of NADH in Cellular Respiration
This lesson is on the role of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide + hydrogen (NADH) in cellular respiration. In this lesson, we'll learn about NADH and cellular respiration, and we'll discuss how the two work together to make energy for the cell.
7. Role of Organic Compounds in Cellular Respiration
This lesson reviews what organic compounds are and what role glucose, pyruvate, and citric acid play in cellular respiration, including in glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain.
8. Role of Oxygen in Cellular Respiration
This lesson focuses on oxygen in cellular respiration. In this lesson, we'll define cellular respiration and discuss why it's important for our bodies. We'll also look at the essential role of oxygen in the cellular respiration process.
9. What Are the Reactants in the Equation for Cellular Respiration?
Why must we breathe and eat in order to stay alive? Most people know that we have to, but have you ever wondered why? This lesson investigates this through an introduction into cellular respiration.
10. What Is the Chemical Equation for Cellular Respiration?
This lesson will go over the basics of cellular respiration and its chemical equation, discussing how this equation can be balanced and what its reactants and products are.
11. What Is the Primary Fuel for Cellular Respiration?
Cellular respiration involves a few different steps and molecules to create energy for cells. One molecule in particular sparks the entire process. In this lesson, we'll discuss this molecule and some of its associated molecules.
12. Where Does Energy Used in Cellular Respiration Originate From?
Cellular respiration creates energy for your cells, but you need energy to start cellular respiration. How does this work? Read on to learn the answer to this question and more on cellular respiration and ATP.
13. Cellulose & Glycogen Structures: Similarities & Comparison
This lesson is on cellulose and glycogen. In this lesson we'll define and look at characteristics of each molecule. We'll also specifically look at similarities and differences between cellulose and glycogen.
14. Acetyl Coenzyme A (Acetyl-CoA): Formation, Structure & Synthesis
In this lesson, you'll learn what acetyl coenzyme A is by discovering its structure and how it's synthesized or formed by the cell. You will further uncover a bit about the function of coenzyme A.
