Diplomonads have neither mitochondria nor hydrogenosomes. All ATP is produced in their cytoplasm. What energy-releasing pathways might they use to make ATP?

Summary Introduction

To explain: The energy-releasing pathways diplomonads use to make their ATP.

Concept introduction: Diplomonads are group of flagellates, and most of the organisms in this group are parasitic. This group is placed among the metamonads, and they appear to be the close relatives of retortamonads. These group of organisms lack mitochondria. Mitosomes that are essentially nonfunctional are present in them.

Explanation of Solution

Diplomonads do not possess mitochondria. Instead of mitochondria, mitochondria-remnant organelles called mitosomes that are nonfunctional are present in them. As they do not have mitochondria, they cannot perform respiration...
