Comment on the statement – Respiration is an energy-producing process, but ATP is being used in some steps of the process.

Answers (1)

ATP molecules are also used in the process of respiration which also involves energy production. It is used to fuel energy into the formation of some intermediaries amidst the respiration process. It is used two times in the process of respiration, which includes: conversion of glucose into glucose 6-phosphate and conversion of fructose 6 - phosphate into fructose 1, 6 - biphosphate. There is a gain of 36 ATP molecules when oxidation of one molecule of glucose takes place. Hence the net gain higher than the consumption, and that is why we can label the respiration process as an energy-yielding process.
