The process in which 2 pyruvic acid molecules from glycolosis is converted into 8 NADH, 2 ATP, and 2 FADH2. Each yields NADH yields three ATP through the electron transport chain and each FADH2 yields 2 ATP. Oxygen is required to create a proton gradient so NADH and FADH2 so it could be converted into ATP by ATP Synthase, an enzyme. Since this requires Oxygen, this is a form of aerobic respiration. ATP synthase is located on the mitochondria membrane of eukaryotes and on the plasma membrane of prokaryotes.
I hate everyone who does not know what the Krebs Cycle is!
