elaborate on each of the following reactions and name the starting material as well as the products for each of the following redox reactions: Glycolysis, electron transport chain, Calvin cycle, Krebs cycle, alcohol fermentation, light reactions.
Starting material is glucose which undergoes cellular process which breaks down glucose through enzymatic action. It;s end products are pyruvic acid, ATP, NADH and water.
Electron transport chain:Starting material : NADH; FADH2
End products of ETC are 3 NADH and 2 FADH2.
Calvin cycle: Carbon dioxide joins with organic molecules to produce glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. After several glyceraldehyde-3-phosphates are produced from the cycle, they join together to form glucose.
Krebs cycle: Starting material ids 2 acetyl CoA.
End products of krebs cycle are 4 CO2, 6 NADH, 2 FADH2; 2 ATP
Alcohol fermentation :
Starting material is NADH and 2 pyruvate.
End products are ethanol and CO2
Light reaction: Starting materials are carbon dioxide and water, and the end products are sugar and oxygen.
6CO2 + 6H2O ------> C6H12O6 + O6 in presense of light
