Respiration 1. I can draw, label and explain the processes of cellular respiration. 2. I can describe the conditions and products of Aerobic and Anaerobic respiration (fermentation). Every living thing does glycolysis. Cellular respiration can be divided into two stages: Glucose is converted to pyruvate, producing a small amount of ATP and NADPH. When oxygen is present, pyruvate and NADH are used to make a large amount of ATP. This process is called aerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration occurs in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells and in the cell membrane of prokaryotic cells. When oxygen is not present, pyruvate is either converted to lactate or ethanol and carbon dioxide. The equation for respiration is: C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + 36 ATP This equation above does not show how cellular respiration occurs. It simply shows that the complete enzyme-assisted breakdown of a glucose molecule uses six oxygen molecules and forms six carbon dioxide molecules, six water molecules, and ATP. Aerobic respiration produces most of the ATP made by cells.
