Aerobic respiration is a chemical reaction that requires oxygen to generate adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, a chemical that cells use for energy. It is also referred to as intracellular energy transfer. More »

One of the main examples of aerobic respiration is the formation of the energy source ATP by breaking down the sugar glucose. According to class resources from Clinton Community College, this process is aerobic because i... More »

Aerobic and anaerobic respiration are the two types of cellular respiration that occur in the cells of living organisms. Aerobic respiration requires oxygen, while anaerobic respiration can occur in the absence of oxygen... More »

The majority of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules are produced during the electron transport chain. This is part of the final step in aerobic cell respiration and part of the oxidative phosphorylation process. More »

Cells capture the energy released by cellular respiration in adenosine triphosphate, commonly abbreviated as ATP. ATP is the main energy currency of all cells, or the molecule that carries the energy needed for all the c... More »

Energy that is produced in cells by a molecule called adenosine triphosphate is called ATP energy. ATP energy is essential for many living processes, including muscle contraction and nerve impulses. In order to provide c... More »
