Anaerobic respiration takes place in the fluid portion of the cytoplasm of cells, away from the mitochondria or any other organelles. It begins with glycolysis, which breaks apart glucose and generates energy and a compo... More »

Humans need oxygen to live because it is an ingredient used during respiration to convert glucose into energy. In the absence of oxygen, cells produce only very limited quantities of energy. More »

Photosynthesis and respiration are complementary processes that both involve carbon dioxide, water, glucose and oxygen, and this is what they have in common. Essentially, they are the same reactions, although the reactio... More »
