What are the processes of cellular respiration?

Cellular Respiration- The primary goal of cellular respiration is to gather energy from glucose and other energy-rich carbon-based molecules. During respiration, these molecules are used to make ATP. ATP molecules drive various cellular processes, and are hence also known as 'Energy currency of the cell' or 'Universal energy molecules'.

There are 4 distinct steps of cellular respiration include:

1. Glycolysis pathway (Embden–Meyerhof pathway).

2. The transition reaction (oxidative decarboxylation).

3. Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle).

4. Oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria.
