Oxygen is an essential requirement for aerobic respiration
Question:

Oxygen is an essential requirement for aerobic respiration but it enters the respiratory process at the end? Discuss.

Solution:

Oxygen is an essential factor for aerobic respiration because it removes hydrogen from the electron transport system. It also acts as a hydrogen acceptor. The absence of

oxygen will inhibit the passage of electrons through the co-enzymes and also there won’t be a formation of proton pump and ATP will not be produced by oxidative

phosphorylation.
