    Aliens land. You find that in almost all ways, their metabolism is identical to that of humans. One important difference is that they do not use NAD/NADH. At every step in the oxidation of biological molecules where humans use NAD/NADH aliens use FAD/FADH-2. At steps where humans use FAD/FADH-2 the aliens do as well.

    a. Who makes more ATP/mole of glucose, aliens or humans?Explain.

    b. Who makes more ATP by substrate level phosphorylation?
