Cellular Respiration Ninja Enzymes
Here's a student video presentation of glycolysis and respiration. It's much better than most [e.g., An Example of High School Biochemistry]. However, there are two errors in the video. The first one is fairly serious. The second one is less serious but it's something we cover in my class and it helps illustrate a fundamental concept about how certain reactions work. The second error was very common in most biochemistry textbooks in the past but it's been eliminated from the majority of 21st century textbooks. Can you spot both errors?
