Abstract

Living organisms require energy from outside sources to accomplish numerous of tasks. The first experiment focused on that grows of yeast and CO2 production using three different types of carbohydrate solutions. The second part of the experiment is to evaluate mitochondrial respiration using redox reactions. Certain food starches reaction changed over time and temperature. In order to reduced DPIP it is necessary the addition of succinate.
Introduction

Cellular respiration is the catabolic pathway of aerobic and anaerobic respiration, which breaks down organic molecules and use electron transport chain for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). It takes place in the mitochondria in both prokaryotes and eukaryotic. Fermentation is a catabolic process that forms a small amount of ATP from glucose or other organic fuel without an electron transport chain and that makes a typical end product, such as alcohol or lactic acid. The significance of these pathways for organisms is to release stored energy by breaking down complex molecules that are called catabolic pathways. There are three types that organisms use in cellular respiration: glycolysis, citric acid cycle and electron transport chain. The two common types of fermentation are alcohol and lactic acid fermentation. Glycolysis takes place in the cytosol where glucose is breakdown into two molecules called pyruvate and glycolysis does not require oxygen. In the eukaryotes, pyruvate enters…
