List the three main steps of aerobic cellular respiration. Which of these steps yields (by far) the most ATP?
Here are two:
Step One: Glucose enters the cell (insulin) and is split into 2 smaller 3 Carbon atoms called pyruvate. Total yield - 2 ATP
Step Two: Pyruvate goes to mitochondria and processed in the Krebs Cycle. Yield = 24 ATP.
