Aerobic respiration is the process in which energy from glucose is released in the presence of oxygen. Three major steps of aerobic respiration are: Glycolysis, Krebs Cycle and Electron Transport Chain. Glycolysis takes place in the cystol of the cell. The glucose is partially oxidized and is broken down into 3 carbon molecules.Does aerobic respiration produce more ATP than anaerobic?
Aerobic respiration is more efficient than anaerobic respiration. For one molecule of glucose, aerobic respiration produces 38 ATP molecules, whereas anaerobic respiration produces just 2 ATP molecules. Aerobic respiration usually takes place in the mitochondria, while anaerobic respiration takes place in the cytoplasm.What are the advantages and disadvantages of aerobic respiration?
Anaerobic respiration has advantages and disadvantages: Advantages: Anaerobic respiration is relatively rapid, and it does not require oxygen. Disadvantages: Anaerobic respiration generates only two ATPs and produces lactic acid. Most lactic acid diffuses out of the cell and into the bloodstream and is subsequently absorbed by the liver.
