Figure 6.21 Maximum Theoretical Energy Yield from Aerobic Respiration in a Prokaryotic Cell This maximum energy yield calculation assumes that for every pair of electrons transferred to the electron transport chain, 3 ATP are synthesized; and for every pair of electrons donated by FADH2,2 ATP are synthesized. Note that these values are theoretical; a variety of factors, including the electron carriers employed and use of the proton motive force to drive other processes, affects the yield.
