What stage of cellular respiration breaks down glucose?
The first stage, Glycolysis, involves the break-down of glucose into pyruvate. This occurs in the cytoplasm. ...

Which stage of glucose metabolism produces the most ATP?
The Electron Transport Chain
What are the stages of cellular respiration?
The Stages of Cellular Respiration 1. Glucose is converted to pyruvate producing a small amount of ATP and NADH. 2. When oxygen is present, pyruvate and NADH are used to make a large amount of ATP. When oxygen isn't present, pyruvate is converted to either lactate or ethanol and carbon dioxide. In Stage One, the breakdown of glucose happens, with glycolysis. In Stage Two, ATP is produced. Stage one is called the Calvin cycle, and stage two is called the Krebs cycle. For more information, go...
Asked in Chemistry
What is oxidized during the oxidation stage of cellular respiration?
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. ...
Asked in Microbiology, Genetics, Chemical Energy
Which stage of cellular respiration requires oxygen?
Cellular respiration requires fuel which is glucose and oxygen gas. Pathways of cellular respiration that require oxygen are called aerobic. ...
Glycolysis is the first part of cellular respiration What occurs during this stage?
Glucose is broken down into pyruvate.
Asked in Biology, Cell Metabolism
What stage of cellular respiration do fats proteins and carbohydrates enter the metabolic pathway?
They enter the metabolism later in the process of respiration.
Asked in Biology, Genetics, Chemical Energy
What is the first stage in cellular respiration that splits a molecule of glucose to release energy?
The first stage is called "glycolysis." "Glyco" meaning "sugar." "Lysis" meaning "to split." ...
Where does the first stage of cellular respiration glycolosis occur?
The first stage of glycolysis occurs in the cytosol of living organisms. This is because the cytosol has a high concentration of glucose and related enzymes. ...
What is the role of glycolysis in cellular respiration?
Glycolysis is the first stage in cellular respiration. It converts glucose into 2 pyruvate, which then moves into the Krebs Cycle. Glycolysis is anaerobic and takes place in the cytoplasm. ...
Asked in Biology, Photosynthesis
Where is glucose synthesized during photosynthesis?
During the light independent stage, some GALP (glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate) molecules exit the chloroplast. They can be converted into glucose in the plant cell cytoplasm. ...
Asked in Chloroplasts
Where does dark stage of photosynthesis take place?
The dark stage of photosynthesis takes place in stroma. The 1 molecule of glucose is converted into glucose by an enzyme called RUBP or RUBISCO.(RUBP=ribulose biphosphate enzyme , RUBISCO=ribulose biphosphate carboxylase oxygenase) ...

What are 3 parts of glycolysis?
• Stage 1 is the investment stage. 2 mols of ATP are consumed for each mol of glucose • Glucose is converted to fructose-1,6-bisphosphate. • Glucose is trapped inside the cell and at the same time converted to an unstable form that can be readily cleaved into 3-carbon units. • In stage 2 fructose-1,6-bisphosphate is cleaved into 2 3- carbon units of glycerladehyde-3-phosphate. • Stage 3 is the harvesting stage. 4 mols of ATP and 2 mols of NADH are gained from each initial...
What occurs in the anaerobic pathway of cellular respiration?
The anaerobic pathway cellular respiration is known as glycolysis. In glycolysis, glucose molecules are broken down into two pyruvate molecules. Glycolysis is the only stage of cellular respiration which can occur without oxygen. The theoretical yield of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is 2 molecules for this first stage. ...
What stage of cellular respiration takes place in the mitochondria?
The production of energy By chemically changing oxygen, and glucose to produce energy, carbon dioxide, and water ...
What are the first stage of cellular respiration called?
The first stage in cellular respiration is known as Glycolysis.

How are carbs turned into energy?
The simplest answer would be that the carbohydrates are first broken down to glucose and other sugars, which are then converted to glucose by various mechanisms. Glucose enters the cell through certain transporters and its metabolized in 3 main stages: * Glycolysis is the first stage, where glucose is converted through a series of reactions to finally produce pyruvate, NADH, and ATP molecules (ATP is the energy currency of the body). * Pyruvate then enters the Kreb's cycle, where it is the central...
What is the first stage of cellular respiration and the oldest in terms of evolution?
the oldest stage of cellular respiration from an evolutinary perspective?
