Cellular Respiration

Cellular respiration is a set of metabolic reactions that use nutrients to produce adenosine triphosphate. The main nutrients used are sugar, amino acids, and fatty acids. The energy that is produced goes on to power the organism. All organisms, including the deer shown above, use at least part of cellular respiration to produce energy.
