How many ATPs per Glucose Molecule

3597 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Ktownslam
First Aid states that in aerobic metabolism glucose produces 32/30 ATP depending on which shuttle. Technically that is correct since NADH does produce 2.5 ATP and FADH 1.5 ATP, and if you follow the pathway the values of FA's statement are correct. But if we assumed that then TCA would yield only 10 ATP!

Did FA simply forgot to count the linker 6 ATP? or there is something I'm missing?

Is there a list of first aid errata anyways?

Thank you
