Where does cellular respiration occur in prokaryotes?

Prokaryotes are cells without a nucleus. In eukaryotic cells (like the cells in humans and other multicellular organisms) cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria. Prokaryotes, however, lack... Read More »

Where does aerobic respiration take place in prokaryotes?

Prokaryotes conduct cellular respiration in the cytoplasm and on their plasma membrane. Both glycolysis and the Kreb's cycle occur throughout the cytoplasm while the electron transport chain and th... Read More »

Where does cellular respiration take place?
