The central cellular pathway of ATP synthesis begins with glycolysis, a form of fermentation in which the sugar glucose is transformed into other sugars in a series of nine enzymatic reacwtions, each successive reaction involving an intermediate sugar containing phosphate. In the process, the six-carbon glucose is converted into two molecules of the threecarbon pyruvic acid. Some of the energy released through 12 7 The Nature, Function, and Evolution of Cells 7 glycolysis of each glucose molecule is captured in the formation of two ATP molecules.
The negatively charged chloride ions remain behind. This separation of electric charges sets up an electric potential across the membrane called the diffusion potential. The size of this potential depends on, among other factors, the difference in concentrations of the permeating ion across the membrane. The cell membrane in general contains the channels of widely different ion specificities, each channel contributing to the overall membrane potential according to the permeability and concentration ratio of the ion passing through it.
According to this system, epithelial tissues include the layers of cells closely bound to one another that form continuous sheets covering body surfaces internally and externally. Thus, epithelial tissues are those tissues that may come into contact with foreign substances. Connective tissues are groups of cells that maintain the form of the body and its organs and that provide cohesion and internal support. The connective tissues include several types of fibrous tissue that vary only in their density and cellularity, as well as the more specialized and recognizable variants—bone, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and adipose (fat) tissue.
