(34) The physical state of cancer patients improves step by step by intensifying cell respiration through activation of the regulation system and the endogenous synthesis mechanism (similar to hormone, enzyme, and protein synthesis).
Studies done on viral effects on cell respiration in vitro (26,21) showed that poliovirus and human herpes virus type one (HHV-1) infections of the cells caused a rapid decrease in total cellular respiration, which was related to mitochondrial dysfunction.
For cell respiration to function properly, it needs proteins synthesised outside and then imported into the mitochondria, and proteins synthesised within the mitochondria themselves from their own DNA (mtDNA).
If ingested, it binds quickly and strongly to the iron in enzymes that are important for cell respiration. This interaction impairs cell respiration, which in turn causes normal cell functions to cease.

4Once the acute period of injury has passed, apply localised heat treatment to the injured area as heat brings blood and nutriments to the damaged area in a process called cell respiration. The application of ice, heat, ice, heat, in the at order can be especially beneficial.
Biolog MicroPlates monitor cell respiration: When a cell can use a nutrient present in one of the 96 wells of the MicroPlate, the organism will begin to respire, creating a by-product that oxidizes a tetrazolium dye used in Biolog's patented redox chemistry.
Through cell respiration, they use any oxygen produced by earlier photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis and cell respiration, for example, require this type of electron travel.
For example, said Schuetz, they do not know whether hemes role in cell respiration is the only important one in supporting AML progression, since heme plays a wide range of roles in the cell.
