What is cellular respiration?

Cellular respiration may be defined as a set of metabolic processes by which cells generate energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) from the food molecules and release waste products. In cellular respiration, oxygen is required to generate large amount of energy but cells can also generate a small amount of energy without oxygen [Continue]

Respiration In Plants

Respiration Tissue Respiration Respiration is a series of enzyme controlled oxidation-reduction reactions during which carbohydrates (respiratory substrate) produced during photosynthesis are oxidized to carbon dioxide and oxygen is reduced to water. Energy is released as a result of bond by bond breakage of respiratory substrate. Much of this energy is stored into molecules of adenosine [Continue]
