Which statement is wrong for Krebs' cycle?
1. There are three points in the cycle where NAD+ is reduced to NADH + H+
2. There is one point in the cycle where FAD+ is reduced to FADH2
3. During conversion of succinyl Co-A to succinic acid, a molecule of GTP is synthesised
4. The cycle starts with condensation of acetyl group (acetyl Co-A) with pyruvic acid to yield citric acid
Which of the following biomolecules is common to respiration-mediated breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and proteins?
(a) Glucose -6-phosphate
(b) Fructose 1,6-bisphosphate
(c) Pyruvic acid
(d) Acetyl Co-A
Concept Questions :-
Oxidative phosphorylation is
(1) formation of ATP by transfer of phosphate group from a substrate to ADP
(2) oxidation of phosphate group in ATP
(c) addition of phosphate group to ATP
(4) formation of ATP by energy release from electrons removed during substrate oxidation.
In which one of the following processes CO2 is not released?
(a) Aerobic respiration in plants
(b) Aerobic respiration in animals
(c) Alcoholic fermentation
(d) Lactate fermentation
The three boxes in this diagram represent the three major biosynthetic pathways in aerobic respiration. Arrow represent net reactants or products
Arrows numbered 4, 8, 12 can all be
(d) FAD+ or FADH2
Which of the metabolites is common to respiration mediated breakdown of fats, carbohydrates and proteins?
(2) Fructose 1, 6, bisphosphate
(3) Pyruvic acid
(4) Acetyl Co-A
The energy-releasing metabolic process in which substrate is oxidised without an external electron acceptor is called
(c) aerobic respiration
Aerobic respiratory pathway is appropriately termed
The chemiosmotic coupling hypothesis of oxidative phosphorylation proposes that Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is formed because
(1) high energy bonds are formed in mitochondrial proteins
(2) ADP is pumped out of the matrix into the intermembrane space
(3) a proton gradient forms across the inner membrane
(4) there is a change in the permeability of the inner mitochondrial membrane toward Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP)
Which one of the following mammalian cells is not capable of metabolising glucose to carbon-dioxide aerobically?
(a) White blood cells
(b) Unstriated muscle cells
(c) Liver cells
(d) Red blood cells
