Chapter 7 Blog: Cellular Respiration, Fermentation, and Secondary Metabolism (Patrick)

Page history last edited by Patrick Racine 13 years, 1 month ago

In the first section of this page, you will write a daily summary of that day's class.  For example in  your chapter 2 blog, your first entry should be titled 9/3/10.  You should then write a one or two paragraph summary of that day's lecture, outlining the major points.  In the second section, you are required to add two items (link to a website, video, animation, student-created slide show, student-created PowerPoint presentation) and one journal article pertaining to a topic in this chapter.  A one-paragraph summary must accompany each item describing the main idea and how it applies to the lecture topic.  Please see the PBWorks help guide for assistance embedding video and other items directly in the page.  I will also produce a how-to video on using tables to wrap text around items and other useful tips.  Please see the syllabus for organization and grading details.


A.  Daily Blog


In Friday's class we discussed the concepts of anaerobic respiration and fermentation. When the body lacks oxygen to carry out the citric acid cycle, the body undergoes an alternative process that breaks down glucose and produces energy. We also reviewed some key concepts that will be on the upcoming exam. Last but not least we finally received our I-pod touches! :) We went over secondary metabolism as well, but honestly I didn't fully understand it.



B.  Useful Materials


This diagram shows the 4 stages of aerobic cellular respiration.  It also displays the net gain of ATP and other products such as NADH and carbon dioxide. You can also clearly distinguish where each stage occurs in the cell.





This animation of the electron transport chain helps better understand how H+ ions are transferred through a series of enzymes. There is also a link on the website that leads to animation that breaksdown the synthesis of ATP in the mitochondria.
