The Calvin Cycle is not a part of cellular respiration. This is a process that occurs in the chloroplasts of green plants. It results in the conversion of solar energy into chemical energy for plants through photosynthes... More »

Plants do perform cellular respiration. Plants produce energy through both photosynthesis and respiration. However, photosynthesis requires sunlight, so plants respire both day and night in order for their cells to have ... More »

Plants carry out cellular respiration, generating chemical energy for the activities of the organism. Cells in the leaves and stems of plants perform photosynthesis, which uses the energy of sunlight to synthesize the ca... More »

Cellular respiration is directly related to breathing, as breathing provides the necessary oxygen molecules for the process of cellular respiration to take place; cellular respiration is a process by which cells acquire ... More »

Cellular respiration's coupled reaction begins with adenosine triphosphate, an enzyme that works with other chemicals in the cell to break down glucose into usable energy. The cell uses some initial ATP to get back more ... More »

Faculty resources from Thomas Nelson Community College explain that cellular respiration is the process by which cells produce adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. ATP is the molecule that carries energy for the cells of an o... More »

Cellular respiration takes place in the mitochondria. This is where the chemical energy of glucose, carbohydrates, fats and proteins is harvested and partially captured in the form of ATP. Cellular respiration involves g... More »
