Many things are oxidized and reduced during cellular respiration. Generally speaking the answer to this question is Glucose.Glucose is oxidized and oxygen is reduced.

The reactant in cellular respiration that gets reduced is the oxygen. The reactant that gets oxidized is carbon

Glucose, C6H12O6, is oxidized

The standard equation for cellular respiration in which glucose is oxidized and oxygen is reduced. C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O

In cellular respiration, glucose is oxidized into pyruvate.

Glucose is. In cell respiration, the carbon atoms of glucose are oxidized.

Glucose is oxidized into CO2. Oxygen is reduced into Water

Glucose is not produced in respiration. Glucose is oxidized in respiration

In photosynthesis, carbon dioxide is reduced to form sugar, while in respiration, sugar is oxidized to form carbon dioxide.

because they become oxidized and reduced when glucose is broken down in photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

NADH is oxidized by the electron transport chain in cellular respiration only.

Light energy does not affect respiration, but it is needed for photosynthesis, which in plants creates the chemical compounds (carbohydrates) that are oxidized in cellular respiration.

In heterotrophs digestion provide glucose molecules.These molecules are oxidized in respiration

User Avatar

During cellular respiration, oxygen is reduced.Oxidation number changes from 0 to -2. Oxygen ends up in water

User Avatar

Because in cellular respiration glucose molecule is completely oxidized whereas in fermentation it forms alcohol.

User Avatar

In case of the cellular respiration glucose is oxidized. You get carbon bi oxide and water as the end products.

Nothing, carbon dioxide isn't used in cellular respiration. Its a product of the Krebs cycle and when pyruvate is oxidized into Acetyl CoA.

When cellular respiration takes place the energy stored in the chemical bonds of glucose (C6H12O6) is released that energy is used to produce ATP(adinosinetri phosphate): In respiration glucose is oxidized and oxygen is reduced to form water(H2O). The carbon atoms of the sugar molecule are released as carbon dioxide (CO2).

The process by which nutrients and oxygen are oxidized in cells is cellular respiration. It involves the oxidation of nutrients usually by oxygen.

User Avatar

Oxygen serves as the final electron acceptor in the transport system.It is the only oxidized agent strong enough to do this. Without oxygen, cellular respiration could not occur.

User Avatar

During cell respiration oxygen is consumed to form carbon dioxide as hydrocarbon compounds are oxidized by metabolic systems.

User Avatar

During cellular respiration energy is released in the form of ATP. Oxygen is reduced to form water and Carbon of glucose combines with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide. Thus, carbon dioxide, water and energy are produced during cellular respiration.

NADH is a reduced form of NAD and it provides a source of electrons.

Oxygen is reduced, gaining electrons and hydrogen ions
