They are used in the production of ATP, the 'energy currency' of the cell.
FADH2 and NADH have the very important role of being electron carriers for the electron transport chain. Both are used at key points in glycolysis and/or the Kreb's cycle.
FADH2 : Carries electrons in the form of hydrogen atoms (1 proton and 1 electron) with 0 net charge. With 2 hydrogens FAD may use these electrons one at a time or 2 at a time, depending on which ever process it is in.
NADH : Carries it's electrons in the form of hydrides (1 proton and 2 electrons) with -1 net charge. Since these electrons are in the hydride form they both must be used at the same time, there isn't an option to use 1 OR 2 only 2 electrons.
NADH and FADH2 are electron carriers for cells.
Both NADH and FADH2 are produced in the Krebs Cycle.
it gets electrons[2 eletrons from NADH and 2 electrons from FADH2] from NADH and FADH2....In case of NADH- it is directly from glycolysis but in case of FADH2-it is not directly attached to ETC but succinate is oxidised to fumarate realising FADH2
4 ATP molocules are made from 1 NADH and 1 FADH2 MO
FADH2 and NADHIt gives four products.They are ATP,CO@, FADH2 and NADH
NADH produces 3 ATPs because it donates the proton at a "higher" location in the electron transport chain than does FADH2, which is why FADH2 produce only 2 ATPs. NADH and FADH2 donates electrons and protons into the electron transport chain.
From what I understand of NADH and FADH2, they move electrons from one molecule to another, aerobic respiration (cells creating energy with the use of oxygen). So I would take to guess that NADH and FADH2 help cells create energy effectively.
NADH and FADH2
NADH and FADH2
NADH, FADH2, and electrons NADH, FADH2, and O2
NADH and FADH2 are electron carriers. They are said to have reducing power because they donate electrons to components of the electron transport chain.
FADH2 Only FADH2 and NADH donates electrons to the electron chain, and FADH2 donates at a lower level. Hence FADH2 produces less ATP than NADH.
Fadh2 and nadh
they carry high energy electrons.
Fadh2 ..2 Nadh...3
FADH2 and NADH
From the oxidation of glucose.
Fewer protons are pumped across the inner mitochondrial membrane when FADH2 is the electron donor than when NADH is the electron donor.
When NADH goes through the electron transport chain it causes three protons to be pumped into the intermembrane space. FADH2 only pumps two. When these protons pass through ATP synthase each makes an ATP. SO NADH makes 3 and FADH2 makes 2.
for people of plato is C
