Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is the energy currency of life, the way that individual cells store and use chemical energy. Any food or other source of energy a cell takes in is converted to ATP, in which form the mecha... More »

Cellular respiration is used to make ATP, adenosine triphosphate, which provides the energy that the cells need to be able to carry out their functions in living cells. All cells carry out some form of cellular respirati... More »

Cellular respiration, with a series of steps and intracellular functions, is the method used by cells to release energy from chemical bonds of molecules, such as food molecules, that provide energy and sustenance for the... More »

Cellular respiration produces six carbon dioxide molecules, six water molecules and 38 molecules of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, for every molecule of glucose. This process occurs in four stages: glycolysis, the trans... More »
