Problem 13: Storing Usable Energy

As a result of glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation and the citric acid cycle, only a small portion of the energy of glucose has been converted to ATP. At this point, the majority of the usable energy is contained in:

A. oxidized electron carriers NAD+ and FAD
B. carbon dioxide
C. pyruvate
D. acetyl coenzyme A
E. reduced electron carriers NADH and FADH
