Explore the process of aerobic cellular respiration and why ATP production is so important in this updated cellular respiration video by The Amoeba Sisters! This video compares the cellular respiration equation to photosynthesis before exploring the basics of glycolysis, Krebs Cycle (Citric Acid Cycle), and the Electron Transport Chain (and chemiosmosis)
We update our old videos with improved art, audio, and explanations. Prefer our old cellular respiration video? Don’t worry, it will continue to exist! https://youtu.be/4Eo7JtRA7lg
