Oxidative phosphorylation takes place in and around the membranes of mitochondria in eukaryotic cells. Oxidative phosphorylation is the process of generating adenosine triphosphate, the main energy currency of all cells,... More »

Glycolysis is the breakdown of a molecule of glucose into two molecules of pyruvate, while the Krebs cycle is the conversion of the resulting pyruvate molecules into a compound known as acetyl CoA. Both of these steps oc... More »

According to the State University of New York, the major products released during cellular respiration are carbon dioxide, water and energy in the form of ATP molecules. These are all generated in several steps in the pr... More »

The electron transport chain takes place in the membranes of the mitochondria in eukaryotic cells. Electron transport is the last stage of cell respiration. The chain passes high-energy electrons formed during glycolysis... More »

Cellular respiration occurs in both the cytoplasm and mitochondria of eukaryotic cells. In general, the complete process of cellular respiration is composed of two main parts: glycolysis in the cytoplasm, and the citric ... More »
