identify NADH and FADH2 as compounds essential for respiration

describe the NADH/FADH2 oxidation as part of an oxidation–reduction process leading to ATP production

process information from a simplified flow chart of biochemical pathways to analyse the steps in oxidative phosphorylation

The two diagrams should be similar. However, you may like to note that the NADH oxidation releases 3 ATP whereas the FADH2 oxidation releases only 2 ATP.

construct an equation to summarise the reduction/oxidation process in ATP regeneration

Answer.

Go To Top

define oxidative phosphorylation as the process that couples the oxidation of NADH and FADH2 to the production of ATP
