Kids Research Express provides a concise and age-appropriate explanation of cellular respiration designed to help kids understand this crucial process, which is essential to the survival of most organisms on Earth. Cellu... More »

Respiration is a mechanical process, while cellular respiration involves biochemical reactions through enzymatic action. Respiration is broadly classified into two types: external and internal; cellular respiration consu... More » Science Biology

Cellular respiration products are water, carbon dioxide, heat and adenosine triphosphate or ATP. This applies to aerobic respiration. For anaerobic respiration, cellular respiration products are alcohol or lactic acid, c... More » Science Biology

Disruptions to cellular respiration can occur from metabolic poisons, from anoxia and by exposing anaerobic organisms to oxygen. Cellular respiration is the process by which plant and animal cells break down organic mole... 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 produces molecules of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, an organic compound composed of adenine, the sugar ribose and three phosphate groups. ATP is a high-energy molecule that cells use to drive many ... More » Science Biology Cells

A rise in temperature increases the rate of cellular respiration. This is due in part to an increase in amount of oxygen needed to carry out processes in the cell. More »
