# How many ATP are produced from glycerol?

19 ATP molecules

## How many ATPs are produced in oxidation of glycerol?

Glycerol requires 1 ATP per molecule for the conversion into glycerol phosphate. The glycerol phosphate is then converted to dihydroxyacetone phosphate with the production of 1 molecule of NADH.

## How many ATP are produced from a 10 carbon fatty acid?

In addition, two equivalents of ATP are lost during the activation of the fatty acid. Therefore, the total ATP yield can be stated as: (n – 1) * 14 + 10 – 2 = total ATP….Energy yield.

Source ATP Total
1 NADH x 2.5 ATP = 2.5 ATP (Theoretically 3 ATP)
1 acetyl CoA x 10 ATP = 10 ATP (Theoretically 12 ATP)
TOTAL = 14 ATP

## How many ATP are produced from a 13 carbon fatty acid?

The most straightforward way to accomplish this task would be to exit as malate, and then be oxidized and decarboxylated by the malic enzyme. The ME generates NADPH, which is energetically equivalent to NADH. Therefore, total yield of ATP from the C15 fatty acid is: -2+34+15+51-1+21 = 118 ATP.

## How many ATP are produced from a 17 carbon fatty acid?

Oxidation of a fatty acid with 17 atoms of carbon. -Subtract 2 ATP that were used in the initial activation of the fatty acid. -Multiply the number of rounds x 5 ATP/round. -Multiply the number of Acetyl CoA x 12 ATP/Acetyl CoA.

## How many ATP does a 16 carbon fatty acid make?

129 ATP molecules

## How many ATP are produced from a 20 carbon fatty acid?

1,200 ATP molecules

2 ATP

30 moles

## Why is ATP 38 or 36?

The textbook answer is that in most eukaryotic cells, 36 ATP are produced from 1 glucose molecule: 2 from Glycolysis and 2 from the Citric Acid Cycle by substrate level phosphorylation, and 32 from Electron Transport by oxidative phosphorylation. In prokaryotes the usual figure is 38.

## How do you get 38 ATP from glucose?

Biology textbooks often state that 38 ATP molecules can be made per oxidized glucose molecule during cellular respiration (2 from glycolysis, 2 from the Krebs cycle, and about 34 from the electron transport system).

## How does 1 NADH produce 2.5 ATP?

When electrons from NADH move through the transport chain, about 10 H +start superscript, plus, end superscript ions are pumped from the matrix to the intermembrane space, so each NADH yields about 2.5 ATP.
