Cell Respiration

- the controlled release of energy from organic compounds in cells to form ATP



Glucose in Cellular Respiration

- in cellular respiration, glucose in the cytoplasm is broken down by electrolysis into pyruvate with a small yield of ATP



Pyruvate and Anaerobic Cell Respiration

- in anaerobic cell respiration, the pyruvate stays in the cytoplasm and is converted into lactate which is then removed from the cell


- in yeast, the pyruvate is converted into carbon dioxide and ethanol


- in both cases, no ATP is produced



Pyruvate and Anaerobic Cell Respiration: Cont.

- if oxygen is available, the pyruvate is taken up into the mitochondria and is broken down into carbon dioxide and water.


- a large amount of ATP is released during this process
