Cellular respiration (main aspects)

Cellular respiration
 - Type of metabolic pathway: catabolic
- Main goal: ATP production from oxidation of NADH e FADH2
- Subcellular localization: mitochondrial inner membrane
- Conditions required to occur: aerobic
- Energetic output (per NADH molecule): +2,5 ATP
- Energetic output (per FADH2 molecule): +1,5 ATP
- Final product: H2O
