No, a gas trap would not be an accurate measure of decarboxylation. The only thing a gas trap could do isÊshow that decarboxylation is happening. It would not show where it was happening.

Decarboxylation of an amino acid results in the evolution of carbon dioxide would a gas trap such as that used in a fermentation test be an accurate measure of decarboxylation?

You would be able to determine if the process were taking place. You would have trouble determining how much was taking place though.

What is Kolbe decarboxylation?

Kolbe decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group and releases carbon dioxide.

What do deamination and decarboxylation reactions have in common?

Both involve Removal Of Atoms from the reactant. Deamination - Removal of Amino group Decarboxylation - Removal of Carbon dioxide

Why is carbon dioxide evolved when an organic solution is shaked with sodium bicarbonate?

It is because of decarboxylation.

What is the definition of the term decarboxylation?

Decarboxylation is a chemical term which simply means removing a caboxyl (COOH) group from a chemical compound. A decarboxylase enzyme however is more commonly described as removing carbon dioxide although strictly speaking it is also removing a carboxylase group.

What is the gas produced by cellular respiration?

Carbon dioxide is the by-product of cellular respiration. This gas is produced in the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate and as a by-product of the citric acid cycle.

When is carbon dioxide released during cellular respiration?

Carbon dioxide is released during two phases of cellular respiration. The first phase that carbon dioxide leaves is during pyruvate decarboxylation. The second time CO2 is released is during the Kreb's cycle. 1 CO2 leaves during the decarboxylation and two leave during the Kreb's cycle. Since there are two pyruvate per glucose molecule, everything happens twice. This makes a total of 6 CO2 released per glucose molecule.

What is the primary molecule used for cellular respiration?

Glucose and oxygen molecules are used then after four steps (glycolysis, pyruvate decarboxylation, kreb cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation), carbon dioxide, water, and ATP are made.

Equation of burning of gas evolve in the heating of oxalic acid in the presence of sulfuric acid?

Oxalic acid undergoes ready decarboxylation on mild heating to give carbon monoxide,carbon dioxide and water(vapour).

What are some by products of cellular respiration?

The by-products of cellular respiration are water and carbon dioxide. The water is produced at the end of the electron transport chain by the union of oxygen with electrons and protons (hydrogen ions) while the carbon dioxide is a by-product of the Kreb's cycle and pyruvate decarboxylation.

Are Kolbe electrolysis and Kolbe decarboxylaton different names of the same reaction?

Decarboxylation refers to a reaction of carboxylic acids and it involves removing a carboxyl group and finally releases carbon dioxide. Therefore,Kolbe electrolysis and Kolbe decarboxylaton are not different names of the same reaction.

Name the two step process where pyruvate is converted to a two carbon compound releasing carbon dioxide. Then the electrons are transferred from a molecule of NADH to the two carbon compound producing?

Pyruvate decarboxylation -> Acetaldehyde reduction The product is ethanol. Pyruvate decarboxylation is performed by pyruvate decarxylase with cofactor thiamine pyrophosphate, and the product, acetaldehyde, is reduced by NADH. (Pyruvate decarboxylase is NOT the same as the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex in cellular respiration. Though pyruvate dehydrogenase also decarboxylates pyruvate, but the decarboxlated species immediately reacts with CoA to form acetyl-CoA).

What is the equation for alcoholic fermentation after glycolysis?

The product of glycolysis is pyruvate. In alcoholic (ethanol) fermentation, pyruvate is converted into ethanol and carbon dioxide. The first step is decarboxylation, catalyzed by pyruvate decarboxylase: CH3COCOO- --> CH3CHO pyruvate --> acetaldehyde Then acetaldehyde is reduced to ethanol; this step is catalyzed by alcohol dehydrogenase and involves the oxidation of NADH+ + H+ to NADH: CH3CHO --> CH3CH2OH

Most of the carbon dioxide released during cellular respiration is released during which stage?

In anaerobic respiration CO2 is release in fermentation (in cytoplasm) but never during glycolysis. Also. It isnot formed during lactic acid fermentation. Only 2CO2 are formed per glucose molecule in fermentation.In aerobic respiration, total 6Co2 molecules are generated per glucose molecule. 2Co2 during transition reaction i.e. during oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetyl CoA in mitochondrial matrix. And remaining 4Co2 are formed during Kreb's cycle. 2Co2 are released between the conversion of oxalosuccinate to alpha keto glutarate and other 2Co2 from oxidative decarboxylation of alpha keto glutarete to alpha keto glutarate.

What produces ATP energy for a cell?

ATP is produced through the process of cellular respiration. Cellular respiration consumes glucose and oxygen to produce water, carbon dioxide, and ATP. Cellular respiration is further divided into the process of glycolysis (cytoplasm), pyruvate decarboxylation (mitochondrial matrix), Krebs cycle (mitochondrial matrix), and electron transport chain (mitochondrial cristae). Therefore, mitochondria are primary sites of ATP synthesis in an eukaryotic cell.

What chemical test would you carry out to prove that the figures of carbon dioxide in air are accurate?

I have absolutely no idea. check a textbook or something.

What precautions will you take for carbon dioxide is necessary for photosynthesis?

I'm fairly certain that no precautions need to be taken for carbon dioxide to be necessary for photosynthesis, as evolution has rather taken care of that for us. However, carbon dioxide is the source of the carbons needed to make sugar, and plants have evolved enough that they cannot do without it.

Why do scientists measure the carbon dioxide content in the middle of the Pacific Ocean?

- carbon dioxide is a green house gas - determinations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are important for the study of climate changes, especially for the evolution of temperatures - determinations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are also important for the study of seas/oceans acidity (and of course for marine biology) because CO2 is easily absorbed in water

What occurs during the oxidation of pyruvate?

One of the three carbon atoms that make up pyruvate is cleaved off by the rather large enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase. This carbon atom attached to oxygen and becomes carbon dioxide(what you exhale). This reaction is known as a decarboxylation reaction. Then the other two remaining carbon atoms make up an acetyl group. Along with the acetyl group is hydrogen which will reduce NAD+ to NADH. The acetyl group is added to coenzyme a, and is called acetyl coenzyme a, or acetyl CoA for short. This is the ultimate creation of the oxidation of pyruvate. If there is a high concentration of ATP then the acetyl-CoA is used for fatty acid biosynthesis. If not than it will be used for oxidative metabolism. That's the basics of it for it is very complex.

It will absorb carbon dioxide in the air, which affects its accurate concentration.
