Energy Harvesting in Animals and Plants
Lecture no. 14 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Thus far, your investigations have accounted for only part of the energy available from food. So where’s all the ATP? In this lecture, see how ATP is produced in abundance in both animal and plant cells, largely via mitochondria (in animals and plants) and chloroplasts (in plants only). You also learn why we need oxygen to stay alive and how poisons such as cyanide do their deadly work.
