Effect of temperature on the rate of cellular respiration of saccharomyces cerevisae
Every living cell should carry out cell respiration in order to convert energy into a form that can be used within the cell. The energy which is required for activities inside cells is supplied by ATP. Therefore cellular respiration is the controlled release of energy from organic compounds to form adenosine diphosphate (ATP). Glycolysis is the sequence of reactions that converts glucose into pyruvate, which produces a small amount of ATP. By the process of glycolysis, glucose is broken down into pyruvate. In yeast cells, pyruvate is converted into ethanol and carbon dioxide.
The rate of cellular respiration depends on several factors such as temperature, pH, and substrate concentration. In this report, an experiment to study the relationship of temperature and the rate of cellular respiration in yeast will be discussed. The scientific name of yeast is saccharomyces cerevisae. Thus, my research question is as follows:
“How does temperature affect the rate of cellular respiration in saccharomyces cerevisa?”
