Study Notes

Cellular Respiration Overview

  • The primary purpose of cellular respiration is to generate energy for the cell in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate)

Nutrients Used in Respiration

  • Common nutrients used by animal and plant cells in respiration are glucose, amino acids, and fatty acids

Aerobic vs Anaerobic Respiration

  • Aerobic respiration distinguishes itself from anaerobic respiration by requiring oxygen (O2) and producing water and carbon dioxide as byproducts, whereas anaerobic respiration does not require oxygen and produces lactic acid or ethanol and carbon dioxide as byproducts

Reactions Involved

  • Cellular respiration involves three types of reactions: oxidation, reduction, and ATP synthesis

Oxidizing Agent

  • The most common oxidizing agent used in cellular respiration is oxygen (O2)
