Cellular respiration is a set of metabolic reactions that make ATP and release waste products in the cells of organisms. Cellular respiration is a redox reaction, where energy is released in the process. The nutrients used in plant and animal cells are sugar, amino acids, fatty acids, and oxygen. Water and CO2 are produced by cellular respiration. These cells of the argali pictured above perform cellular respiration.
