During cellular respiration, glucose breaks down into carbon dioxide and water. This process releases a store of energy, or ATP, that cells can use for their needs. More »

Carl Rod Nave of Georgia State University explains that biologists consider ATP, short for adenosine triphosphate, to be the energy currency of life. An ATP molecule stores energy that organisms require to perform vital ... 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 »

Cellular respiration is a metabolic process in which glucose is broken down to produce carbon dioxide and water. ATP, or biological energy, and body heat are given off in the process. More »

Cellular respiration requires energy from an organic source, such as glucose and oxygen, to take place. Cellular respiration is the process by which energy is harvested from an organic source and then stored in the form ... 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 »
