cellular respiration


Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia.

cellular respiration

n.
The series of metabolic processes by which living cells produce energy through the oxidation of organic substances.

cellular respiration

or

cell respiration

a catabolic process (see CATABOLISM) occurring in cells where complex organic molecules are broken down to release energy for other cellular processes. Cell respiration usually occurs in the presence of oxygen (see AEROBIC RESPIRATION) but some organisms can respire without oxygen (see ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION).

Wg toxicity is attributed to the presence of a hepatotoxic terpenoid called atractyloside, a powerful inhibitor of cellular respiration and ATP synthesis (7).
These kits are visual magnetic manipulatives that allow teacher and students to engage in understanding all the fundamental steps in the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. I'm always looking for some new and better way to explain these biological processes in a way that students really understand.
Here solar energy is converted into chemical energy and encapsulated in organic substances, while oxygen is released in air to be taken up again by other plants and by animals in the process of cellular respiration. By the blend of water and minerals with sunlight and C[O.sub.2], green plants form link between earth and sky.

Without the presence of oxygen, also known as an anaerobic environment, regular cellular respiration cannot take place and a process known as fermentation takes over.
Among the changes they identified were alterations in molecules connected to blood vessel constriction and cellular respiration, as well as increases in levels of a molecule called niacinamide that enhances insulin release and helps control blood sugar, and decreases in levels of allantoin, a molecule that helps promote oxidative stress.
Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for his research into cellular respiration, showing that cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen ) or acidic conditions.
Studies done on viral effects on cell respiration in vitro (26,21) showed that poliovirus and human herpes virus type one (HHV-1) infections of the cells caused a rapid decrease in total cellular respiration, which was related to mitochondrial dysfunction.
Nitric oxide (NO), synthesized in the body from l-arginine by NO synthases, plays a role in adaptation to physical exercise by modulating blood flow, muscular contraction and glucose uptake and in the control of cellular respiration. Other studies have shown that NO can be formed in vivo from the reduction of inorganic nitrate (N[O.sub.3.sup.-]) and nitrite ([N[O.sub.2.sup.-]).
It is a great distraction from studying cellular respiration (biology), and when I can finally tear myself away from the woman-on-woman, man-on-woman, woman-on-woman-on-man, and woman-alone stuff, I go looking for my lady love, my wife.
Laser energy affects many physiological processes, including cellular respiration and gene expression.
