    The free energy for the oxidation of glucose to CO2and water is-686 kcal/mole and the free energy for the reduction of NAD+ to NADH is +53 kcal/mole. Why are only two molecules of NADH formed during glycolysis when it appears that as many as a dozen could be formed?

    A) Most of the free energy availablefrom the oxidation of glucose is used in the production of ATP in glycolysis.

    B) Glycolysis is a very inefficient reaction, with much of the energy of glucose released as heat.

    C) Most of the free energy available from the oxidation of glucose remains in pyruvate, one of the products of glycolysis.

    D) There is no CO2or water produced as products of glycolysis.

    E) Glycolysis consists of many enzymatic reactions, each of which extracts some energy from the glucose molecule.



    C) Most of the free energy available from the oxidation of glucose remains in pyruvate, one of the products of glycolysis.

    A molecule that is phosphorylated

    A) has been reduced as a result of a redox reaction involving the loss of an inorganic phosphate.

    B) has a decreased chemical reactivity; it is less likely to provide energy for cellular work.

    C) has been oxidized as a result of a redox reaction involving the gain of an inorganic phosphate.

    D) has an increased chemical reactivity; it is primed to do cellular work.

    E) has less energy than before its phosphorylation and therefore less energy for cellular work.



    D) has an increased chemical reactivity; it is primed to do cellular work.
