The Process Of Cellular Respiration

Good Essays
In every living thing, there is a very important process that is called Cellular Respiration. Cellular Respiration is the process that creates energy for your body to function. Without the process of Cellular Respiration, our bodies wouldn't be able to function. We wouldn't make any energy. We couldn't run, play sports, or walk. Humans, or any other living thing in the world wouldn’t be able to survive without this process.

The first very important step in Cellular Respiration is called glycolysis. Glycolysis happens in the cytoplasm of af cells. In glycolysis, there are two phases that happen. The investment phase and the harvest. When we consume food, glycolysis goes to work. The food that we consume is first sent into the investment phase. In the investment phase, the glucose that is in our food is transformed into fructose. This happens because the glucose needs to be broken down to get ATPs. After it is transformed into fructose, the fructose is then transformed into G3P. After this, the glyceraldehyde 3 phosphate is brought into the harvest phase. The final step happens in glycolysis happens in the harvest phase. The G3P is broken down again to get 2NADH. The 2NADH is then brought to the bank to be transformed once more into ATP. This is the thing that our membrane needs.

The Krebs Cycle happens in the matrix of the mitochondria. The Pyruvate is brought over from Glycolysis to The Krebs Cycle. From there, The Krebs Cycle makes 2 ATPs, NADA, and 2 FDH2s. The NADA and the 2 FDH2s are the brought over the The Electron Transport

    Cellular respiration is the set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products (Wikipedia, n.d.). Metabolism affects the processing of a pear as it moved through the process of cellular respiration. Furthermore, there are three steps in the cellular respiration process. The three-stage process consists of glycolysis, the Krebs Cycle, and the electron transport…
