Compare/Contrast Aerobic Respiration & Photosynthesis Photosynthesis Aerobic Respiration Type of metabolic reaction Anabolism Catabolism Raw materials CO 2 , H 2 O C 6 H 12 O 6 , O 2 End products C 6 H 12 O 6, O 2 CO 2 , H 2 O Which cells have these processes? Cells that contain chlorophyll (certain cells of plants, algae, and some bacteria) Every actively metabolizing cell has aerobic respiration or some other energy- releasing pathway Sites involved (in eukaryotic cells) Chloroplasts Cytosol (glycolysis); mitochondria ATP production By photophosphorylation (a chemiosmotic process) By substrate-level phosphorylation and by oxidative phosphorylation (a chemiosmotic process)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
