Bio Exam 2 Set #1

What is step one of mitochondrial electron transport?

The passage of electron from NADH through the electron transport chain to O2 to make water in the matrix which produces energy.

What is step two of mitochondrial electron transport?

The energy produced in step one is used to set up the proton gradient. Protons are moved out of the matrix to intermembrane space against their electro-chemical gradient

Where is electron transport happening in the mitochondria?

Within the inner membrane

What is step three of mitochondrial electron transport?

The energy from the proton gradient is used to make atp

What is proton motive force?

If proton concentration is higher one on side, they are going to want to move to the other side.

How can a proton get through an impermeable membrane? (step 3)

A proton channel that is linked up to an ATP synthase "to syntheize" - The proton runs through the synthase and makes ATP

Good ways to stop and kill the cell are?

1. Steal electrons to stop their flow by tapping in with artifical electron acceptors.

2. Permeabilize the membrane by adding a detergent and dissipating the proton gradient

3. You can inhibit electron transfer to O2. Removin the O2 or blocking it will leave it with nothing to pass it to, making it stop.

You have to have a proton gradient be more concentrated in the _______ as opposed to the _______ in the mitochondria to make ATP.

Inermembrane spaceMatrix

You have to have a gradient such that the ___ is lower outside the inner membrane than inner to make ATP.


How does Cynanide and CO work as mitochondrial posions?

They inhibit electron tansport to O2 ; leaving the process with no final electron acceptor. The electron transport backs up and stops, blocking step 3, which blocks step 2, and then you're dead.(Basically have no oxygen)

How does DNP (dinitrophenol) work as a mitochondrial posion?

Uncouples the energy of the electron transport from ATP sythesis so that the energy is lost as heat (non-shivering thermogenesis) which blocks step 2.

How do detergents work as a mitochondria posion?

Break down the proton gradient blocking step 2. (pokes holes in cell when mitochondra is surrounded by them)

Pyruvate Acid is

Glycoysis break down, smallest parts goes into the mitochondria

The products of glycolsis are converted to C2 compunds (_________ in the mitochondria. These go into the TCA cycle in the _______.

acetyl CoAmatrix

For the TCA cycle to "turn" you need to put ________ into it, and then it goes.

C2 acetyl CoA

The first part of electron transport w/ ATP sythesis is?

Glycolysis happens in the cytoplasmThe products of glycolysis are converted to C2 compunds (acetyl CoA) in the mitochondiraacetyl CoA goes into the TCA cycle in the matrix

The TCA cycle produces NADH and other things like CO2 in the ______.


The second part of electron transport w/ ATP sythesis is?

The TCA cysle produces NADH and other things like CO2 in the matrix.

Where does NADH donate electrons for membrane electron transport?

In the matrix to the electron transport carriers within the inner membrane

The third part of electron transport w/ ATP sythesis is?

NADH donates electrons for membrane electron transport from the matrix to the electron transport carriers in the inner membrane then back the the final O2 accpeptor which produces water.

NADH, O2 and water are in ______

The matrix.

Electrons goes in the _________ and back to oxygen.

Inner membrane.

The fourth part of electron transport w/ ATP sythesis is?

The energy of electron transport is used to set up the proton gradient across the inner membrane

The fifth part of electron transport w/ ATP sythesis is?

The energy from the proton gradient is used to make ATP by the ATP synthase

The ATP synthase has ___ parts.


What is the F0 part od the ATP synthase?

the proton channel in the membrane

What is the F1 part of the ATP synthase?

The enzyematic part that makes the ATP in the matrix (Adds a phosphate to ADP to make ATP)

Which is more acidic; Matrix or intermembrane space?

Intermembrane space (proton gradient is here) More protons = less pH = more acidic

Life at equilbirum can or cannot exist?


Protons are going ___ during electron transport


Protons are going ___ during ATP synthase


You _____ energy to pump protons out


You ____ energy when protons come in


The F1 complex makes the ____ but it Can't do it by itself.
