Steps of Glycolysis

Mnemonic: Gogo Goes to Fruit seller to buy Fruits; Gets Bananas Pears Peaches Pineapples and Papaya

Mnemonics: Respiration in Plants | Biology Class 11 - NEET

Mnemonic Explanation: Gogo, the penguin is very particular about his health. He often goes to fruit vendor to buy fruits, knowing very well that they are a source of healthy carbohydrates and give energy. So, as Gogo goes to the fruit vendor to get his fruits, he even teaches you the initial pathway of how energy can be obtained by the breakdown of glucose (carbohydrates) i.e. glycolysis.  

Citric Acid Cycle

Mnemonic: Can I Keep Selling Seashells For Money, Officer?

  • Can: Citrate
  • I: Isocitrate
  • Keep: α-Ketoglutarate
  • Selling: Succinyl-CoA
  • Seashells: Succinate
  • For: Fumarate
  • Money: Malate
  • Officer: Oxaloacetate

Mnemonic Explanation: Mnemonic "Can I Keep Selling Seashells For Money, Officer?" is a helpful tool to remember the intermediates of the Citric Acid Cycle (also known as the Krebs Cycle or TCA Cycle). The Citric Acid Cycle is a central metabolic pathway that occurs in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells. It plays a crucial role in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins to produce energy in the form of ATP. By using this mnemonic, you can easily remember the intermediates of the Citric Acid Cycle in the correct order and understand the sequential steps involved in this essential cellular process.

Electron Transport Chain

Mnemonic: "Queen Victoria's Nice Party At Buckingham Castle. She Gave Feathers To Charming Servants."

  • Queen (Complex I): Also known as NADH-CoQ Reductase, this complex accepts electrons from NADH and passes them to coenzyme Q (CoQ) or ubiquinone.
  • Victoria's (Complex II): Also known as Succinate-CoQ Reductase, this complex receives electrons from succinate (a product of the Citric Acid Cycle) and transfers them to CoQ.
  • Nice (Coenzyme Q - CoQ): Coenzyme Q, or ubiquinone, is a mobile electron carrier that shuttles electrons between Complexes I and II and Complex III.
  • Party (Complex III): Also known as CoQH2-Cytochrome c Reductase, this complex receives electrons from CoQ and transfers them to cytochrome c.
  • At (Cytochrome c): Cytochrome c is a small mobile protein that carries electrons from Complex III to Complex IV.
  • Buckingham (Complex IV): Also known as Cytochrome c Oxidase, this complex accepts electrons from cytochrome c and transfers them to oxygen (O2), which is the final electron acceptor.
  • Castle (Oxygen - O2): Oxygen serves as the final electron acceptor in the Electron Transport Chain, and its reduction results in the formation of water (H2O).
  • She (Chemiosmosis): The proton gradient generated by the ETC drives the synthesis of ATP through chemiosmosis.
  • Gave (Gradient): The proton gradient refers to the difference in proton concentration across the inner mitochondrial membrane.
  • Feathers (F0 and F1 ATP synthase): These are the ATP synthase complexes responsible for ATP synthesis during chemiosmosis.
  • To (Transport): The Electron Transport Chain facilitates the transport of electrons down the redox chain to drive the proton pumping and create the proton gradient.
  • Charming (Chemiosmotic Coupling): The coupling of the electron transport and proton pumping with ATP synthesis.
  • Servants (System): The Electron Transport Chain is a vital system in cellular respiration that produces the majority of ATP.
