RESPIRATION, Med. jur. Breathing, which consists of the drawing into, inhaling, or more technically, inspiring, atmospheric air into the lungs, and then: forcing out, expelling, or technically expiring, from the lungs the air therein. Chit. Med. Jur. 92 and 416, note n.

The team found that, at low-enough elevations (where the atmosphere is thickest) and at low-enough temperatures (where gases like oxygen have an easier time staying in a liquid solution), an unexpectedly high amount of oxygen could exist in the water -- a value several orders of magnitude above the threshold needed for aerobic respiration in Earth's oceans today.
In conclusion, the present study provides experimental evidence that fornix DBS could significantly improve hippocampal glucose metabolism in aged mice by promoting cellular aerobic respiration activity, while no significant alterations were observed in adult mice.
During the exposure time, a significant peak height increase in glucose consumption and extracellular acidification was seen, indicating an increase in aerobic respiration to promote oxidative burst.
Indeed, these modification sites might be found to govern Hk1 dynamics under aerobic respiration with future research.

The ETC provides the majority of energy with 34 ATP per glucose being produced in aerobic respiration. In the ETC, electrons are transferred from NADH and [FADH.sub.2] through membrane bound proteins to an electronegatire (affinity for electrons) terminal electron acceptor.
Aerobic respiration proceeds in three major phases: (1) glycolysis, (2) the Krebs cycle, and (3) electron transport.
Breathing in oxygen is called aerobic respiration, and helps cells in your body convert the food you eat into a chemical called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
It requires selective barrier properties that provide controlled oxygen transmission rate and controlled oxygen content inside the package, so that a limited amount of aerobic respiration can occur.
Since aerobic respiration generates ATP many times more efficiently than the alternative anaerobic pathway, there's a huge incentive for an anaerobic organism to form a symbiosis with an aerobic partner, explains Cavalier-Smith.
These costs are met by the supply of ATP from aerobic respiration (with smaller amounts of ATP presumably from glycolysis), and therefore aerobic respiration is likely to reflect changes in the cost of calcification.
"The rising levels of atmospheric oxygen fostered the evolution of new bacteria species that survived by aerobic respiration on land.
