Chapter 9

1.Organisms that can manufacture their own chemical energy sources are called _____________.

2.________ depend on energy stored in chemical bonds by autotrophs for their food energy.

3.Simple molecules are further broken down in cells in a process called _________, during which energy stored in their chemical bonds is used to power the production of ATP.

4.Glucose is broken down to carbon dioxide and water in organisms which breathe air in a process called as ________ respiration.

5.In glycolysis, a major portion of the energy remains in the final product, which is called ________.

6.For further derivation of energy, aerobic cells must convert pyruvate into acetyl coenzyme A by stripping off a C02 molecule. This process is known as ___________.

7.All of the reactions of glucose oxidation that follow glycolysis involving the transfer of electrons to their final acceptor, oxygen, take place in eukaryotic cells in the ___________.
