nervous system is an extensive network that channels nerve impulses from your brain to virtually every cell that makes up your body. This chart shows some of the integral relationships between the spine, nervous system and the body.
Oxidative Decarboxylation of pyruvate: in mitochondria; pyruvate formed during glycolysis is transported from cytoplasm into mitochondrial matrix where it is decarboxylated (loses a CO2) & the acetyl group that remains is transferred to coenzyme A to form acetyl CoA; in the process, NAD+ is reduced to NADH
Cellular Respiration: the process that allows organisms to use (release) energy stored in the chemical bonds of glucose (C6H12O6) which is used to produce ATP that cells use to supply their energy needs; process in which the energy in glucose is transferred to ATP
Organisms derive the majority of their energy from the Kreb's Cycle, also known as the TCA cycle. The Kreb's Cycle is an aerobic process consisting of eight definite steps. In order to enter the Kreb'…
