      hi,why in some parts it says that the phases when the glucose breakdown are, glylolisis, electron transport chain, citric acid cycle
      and others: electron transport chain, citric acid, glycolisis
      my conclusion is that the first one is the correct one what do you think?
      thanx a lot..

      both of them are wrong…
      it should be: G-C-E

      so youre saying that it is:
      glycolysis, krebs cycle, electron transport chain?

      what u just said seems right but that C in the previous post may be critic acid cycle (which is the the same as Krebs i think)

      yet it all depends on what type of cell, i.e would be totally different say in a trypanosome

      Cell respiration occurs as follows: Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle (Citric Acid), and ETC. Glycolysis occurs in the mitochondria and everything else occurs in the cytoplasm.

      Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm, I believe.

      True.
      Glycolysis occurs in the citoplasm and produces 2 molecules of pyruvate, 2 ATP and 2 NADH
      Krebs cycle occurs in the mithocondrial matrix and produces NADH and FADH2 and 1 ATP
      Electron transport chain occurs in the mithocondria(inner membrane) and produces the largest amount of ATP.

      those’re the most common of energy conversion..:lol:

      My mistake I had those switched 😉
