  • Q:

    Which of the following is NOT correct regarding the maximum number of ATPs produced per molecule of aerobically oxidized glucose?

     

    A

    NADH influences the maximum number of ATPs since it cannot cross the inner mitochondrial membrane.

    B

    The maximum number of ATPs does not depend on the "shuttle system" used.

    C

    Using the malate shuttle to translocate electrons produced by glycolysis for oxidative phosphorylation results in 2.5 ATP per NADH.

    D

    Using the glycerol 3-phosphate shuttle to translocate electrons produced by glycolysis for oxidative phosphorylation results in 1.5 ATP per NADH.
