What Organelles are Involved in Cellular Respiration?

1. What Organelles are Involved in Cellular Respiration?

The way our bodies break down and utilize food and energy is an amazing thing. Each cell relies on cellular respiration, using specific organelles in the process. We will discuss them here.

By-products of Cellular Respiration

2. By-products of Cellular Respiration

During cellular respiration, your body turns energy from food into a usable food for your cells. When this happens, other products that your body doesn't need are made. In this lesson, we will discuss the by-products of cellular respiration.

First Stage of Cellular Respiration

3. First Stage of Cellular Respiration

How does the energy we get from consuming food make our bodies work? How do cells convert the food into a usable form of energy? In this lesson, we will address these questions through an investigation into cellular respiration.

Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration

4. Glycolysis and Cellular Respiration

In this lesson, we will review cellular respiration and explore a distinct, important part of its process: glycolysis. We will also cover the role of enzymes, ATP, and oxygen in glycolysis.

The Second Stage of Cellular Respiration

5. The Second Stage of Cellular Respiration

How does your body convert food energy into usable cellular energy? How many steps are involved in this process? This lesson answers those questions through an exploration of the Krebs cycle. Illustrations are included to guide your understanding.

What are the Products of Cell Respiration?

6. What are the Products of Cell Respiration?

This lesson provides a summary of cellular respiration, focusing on what is created during the process and why these products are a result of cellular respiration.

What Is the Purpose of Cellular Respiration?

7. What Is the Purpose of Cellular Respiration?

In this lesson, explore cellular respiration and its purpose. You'll see the differences between anabolic and catabolic reactions and understand how our bodies are able to utilize the energy stored in the foods we eat.

What Pathway Does Cellular Respiration Begin With?

8. What Pathway Does Cellular Respiration Begin With?

In this lesson, we will review the first pathway in cellular respiration, which is called glycolysis. We'll examine the stages and steps in the glycolytic pathway, and find out how energy, or ATP, is created in the process.

Where Is Cellular Respiration Located?

9. Where Is Cellular Respiration Located?

Cellular respiration is the essential process that creates energy for all of life's activities. This lesson discusses this fundamental procedure and describes where it takes place.

What is Chemiosmosis? - Definition & Process

10. What is Chemiosmosis? - Definition & Process

This lesson is about chemiosmosis, an important process that allows our bodies to make energy. In this lesson, we'll discuss what chemiosmosis is and how it works, and we'll look at some actual applications in the body.
