Pyruvate is involved in several steps of cellular respiration including glycolysis, where it is the product of glucose being broken down, the Kreb's cycle uses the pyruvate to complete its process as well. During vigorou... More »

Cellular respiration is a biological process in which cells convert sugar, amino acids and fatty acids into energy utilized by the cell. The process plays an essential role in maintaining the biological functions of all ... More »

Rotenone is in the class of electron transport inhibitors, which bind at some point on the transport chain, keeping electrons from moving. This stops cellular respiration from taking place at all through that particular ... 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 » Science Biology

According to the BBC, aerobic respiration requires oxygen in order to release energy from glucose for cellular use. Carbon dioxide and water are waste products of aerobic respiration. This process occurs in organelles ca... More »

Most of the ATP for aerobic respiration is produced during the Krebs Cycle, also called the citric acid cycle, which breaks down pyruvate, the end product of glycolysis, to produce ATP. This process is duplicated twice s... More »

The steps required for aerobic cellular respiration are, in order of their occurrence: glucose — glycosis — TCA cycle — electron transport reactions — denosine triphosphate, or ATP. The sequence starts with the carbohydr... More »
