Oxidative Phosphorylation

Glucose can be metabolised through glycolysis, the citric acid cycle and oxidative phosphorylation to produce energy for the body in the form of ATP. a. Calculate the net number of ATP that can be generated from four (4) moles of glucose in the liver. Assume that this is occurring under optimal conditions. Show all workings. (150 words b. Would the same number of ATP be produced if the four molecules of glucose were being metabolised in the muscle tissue? How many ATP would be generated? Please explain. (100 words) Discuss the importance of the citric acid cycle in macronutrient metabolism. (150 words) b. Why is GTP considered to be the equivalent of ATP? (50 words) c. Explain how one molecule of acetyl CoA entering the citric acid cycle produces 12 molecules of ATP in the liver (please show all workings)
