    An organism is discovered that consumes a considerable amount of sugar, yet does not gain much weight when denied air. Curiously, the consumption of sugar increases as air is removed from the organism's environment, but the organism seems to thrive even in the absence of air. When returned to normal air, the organism does fine. Which of the following best describes the organism?
    a. It must use a molecule other than oxygen to accept electrons from the electron transport chain.
    b. It is a normal eukaryotic organism.
    c. The organism obviously lacks the citric acid cycle and electron transport chain.
    d. It is an anaerobic organism.
    e. It is a facultative anaerobe.
    E: It is a facultative anaerobe.

    b. Glycolysis neither uses nor needs O2.
    c. Glycolysis is found in all eukaryotic cells.
    d. The enzymes of glycolysis are found in the cytosol rather than in a membrane-enclosed organelle.

    Why is glycolysis considered to be one of the first metabolic pathways to have evolved?
    a. It produces much less ATP than does oxidative phosphorylation.
    b. It is found in the cytosol, does not involve oxygen, and is present in most organisms.
    c. It is found in prokaryotic cells but not in eukaryotic cells.
    d. It relies on chemiosmosis which is a metabolic mechanism present only in the first cells-prokaryotic cells.
    e. It requires the presence of membrane-enclosed cell organelles found only in eukaryotic cells.
    B: It is found in the cytosol, but does not involve oxygen, and is present in most organisms.

    Phosphofructokinase is an allosteric enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of fructose-6-phosphate to fructose-1,6-bisphosphate, an early step of glycolysis. In the presence of oxygen, an increase in the amount of ATP in a cell would be expected to
    a. inhibit the enzyme and thus slow the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle
    b. activate the enzyme and thus slow the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle
    c. inhibit the enzyme and thus increase the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle
    d. activate the enzyme and increase the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle
    e. inhibit the enzyme and thus increase the rate of glycolysis and the concentration of citrate
    A: inhibit the enzyme and thus slow the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle
