Important Notes on Respiration in Plants

  • ATP: Adenosine tri phosphate
  • ADP: Adenosne di phosphate
  • NAD: Nicotinamide Adenine dinucleotide
  • NADP: Nicotinamide Adenine dinucleotide Phosphate
  • NADH: Reduced Nicotinamide Adenine dinucleotide
  • PGA: Phosphoglyceric acid
  • PGAL: Phospho glyceraldehyde
  • FAD: Flavin adenine dinucleotide
  • ETS: Electron transport system
  • ETC: Electron transport chain

  • OAA: Oxalo acetic acid
  • FMN: Flavin mono nucleotide
  • PPP: Pentose phosphate pathway

More to Know
  • Aerobic respiration: Complete oxidation of organic food in presence of oxygen thereby producing CO2, water and energy.
  • Anaerobic respiration: Incomplete breakdown of organic food to liberate energy in the absence of oxygen.
  • ATP Synthetize: An enzyme complex that catalysis synthesis of ATP during oxidative phospho-relation.
  • Fermentation: Breakdown of organic substance that takes place in certain microbe like yeast under anaerobic condition with the production of CO2 and ethanol.
  • Glycolysis: Enzymatic breakdown of glucose into pyruvic acid that occurs in the cytoplasm.
  • Oxidative phosphorylation: Process of formation of ATP from ADP and Pi using the energy from proton gradient.

  3. Dehydrogenase: Enzyme that catalyses removal of H atom from the substrate.
  4. Electron acceptor: Organic compound which receive electrons produced during oxidation-reduction reactions.
  5. Electron transport: Movement of electron from substrate to oxygen through respiratory chain during respiration.
  6. Respiration: Biochemical oxidation food to release energy.
  7. Respiratory Quotient: The ratio of the volume of CO2 produced to the volume of oxygen consumed.
  8. Proton gradient: Difference in proton concentration across the tissue membrane.

The term has originated from the Greek word, glycos = glucose, lysis = splitting, or breakdown means breakdown of glucose molecule to pyruvic acid. It was given by Embden Meyerhof and Parnas. It is a chain of 10 reactions to convert glucose into pyruvate. It is common for aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
