________ ________ is the process that converts the chemical energy of food (sugars) to the chemical energy of ATP (adenosine triphosphate in animal cells, including human cells.
Cellular respiration occurs in three main stages:
2. Citric Acid Cycle
3. Oxidative Phosphorylation
_______ begins respiration by breaking glucose, a 6-C molecule, into 2 molecules of pyruvate, a 3-C compound.
Glycolysis occurs in the ________
