Abstract :

Existence of living organisms depends on the ability of their cells to incorporate a number of simple compounds and transform them into more complex molecules required for cellular structure and function. The energy required for these synthetic reactions must be obtained from the same substrates by suitable oxidation reactions coupled to the generation of high energy phosphate esters. The entire process ultimately depends on the availability of molecular oxygen in cellular environment. Oxygen is made available to the tissues and in turn to cells by respiration.
