Aerobic cellular respiration is
the utilisation of oxygen by cells
for the production of ATP
It is a series of over 20 chemical
reactions that can be divided into
The first phase is called
Glycolysis and takes
Place in the cell
Glycolysis involves the breakdown
of one molecule of glucose (6C) to form
2 molecules of pyruvic acid (3C) or
Pyruvate; there is a net production
of two atp moleculesduring this phase
Glycolysis takes place in the 1 of cells and begins with the activation of the main respiratory substrate, namely the hexose sugar 2. This activation involves the addition of two 3 molecules provided by two molecules of 4. The resultant activated molecule is known as 5 and in the next stage of glycolysis it is split into two molecules of 6. The third stage entails the oxidation of these molecules by the removal of 7, which is transferred to a carrier called 8. The final stage is the production of the 3 carbon molecule 9 which also results in the formation of two molecules of 10.
