Project #56009 - Citric Acid Cycle

2.  Create an original dynamic diagram that shows how the citric acid cycle (CAC) is central to aerobic metabolism.

a.  Illustrate the following elements in your diagram:

•  how different metabolites enter the cycle

•  the entire CAC, including the names of all intermediates, enzymes, and products

•  where the products of the CAC go in order to make ATP

•  the role of oxygen in this process

 

Note: A dynamic diagram is a clearly labeled diagram that uses arrows to indicate movement and interactions.

 

3.  Explain where in the CAC a hypothetical defect of an enzyme could occur that would decrease the overall ATP production of the mitochondria.

 

Note: This is a hypothetical defect, so the explanation should not include descriptions of any known disease.

 

a.  Discuss what happens to the product of the enzyme from part B3, that includes each of the followng points:

•  whether the entire cycle will continue to function

•  what will happen to the cycle products and their contribution to ATP production

4.  Explain the specific role of coenzyme Q10 in the electron transport chain.

a.  Explain how coenzyme Q10 leads to ATP synthesis.

i.  Describe the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation.
