The accumulation of dioxygen in Earth's atmosphere allowed for the evolution of aerobic organisms that use O2 as the terminal electron acceptor, thus providing a higher yield of energy compared with fermentation and anaerobic respiration. For example, in aerobic metabolism, the complete breakdown of one molecule of glucose yields a total of 38 molecules of ATP, whereas the anaerobic breakdown of this same glucose molecule to ethanol and CO, yields only 8 ATPs. In its ground state, molecular O2… Expand
