ATP yeild form different substrates

What is the yield of ATP when each of the following substrates is completely oxidized to CO2 by a mammalian cell homogenate? Assume that glycolysis, the citric cycle and oxidative phosphorylation are fully active.
a) Pyruvate
c) Fructose 1,6-biphosphate
d) Glucose
e) Dihydroxyacetone phosphate
(Please be detailed in your answer)

Solution Summary

Different substrates enter either through glycolysis or through Kreb cycle to produce ATP. Carbohydrate enters through glycolysis and at different stages different number of ATPs are produced.
