Pyruvate Dehydrogenase

This animation shows how the pyruvate dehydrogenase enzyme complex converts pyruvate into acetyl-CoA. It is the second of six animations about cellular respiration.


This animation shows how glycolysis converts glucose into pyruvate through a series of enzyme reactions. It is the first of six animations about cellular respiration.

ATP in Use

This animation shows two examples of how the cell uses energy from ATP. It is the sixth of six animations about cellular respiration.

Citric Acid Cycle

This animation shows the reactions of the citric acid cycle, which splits off carbon atoms and generates energy-rich reduced forms of cofactor molecules. It is the third of six animations about cellular respiration.

Electron Transport Chain

This animation shows how the enzyme complexes of the electron transport chain harvest energy from cofactor molecules to pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane and establish a chemical gradient. It is the fourth of six animations about cellular respiration.

ATP Synthesis

This animation shows how the proton gradient across the mitochondrial membrane powers the ATP synthase enzyme to make ATP. It is the fifth of six animations about cellular respiration.

Animated Life: The Living Fossil Fish

This animated short video tells the story of the discovery of the coelacanth, a species that belongs to a group of lobe-finned fish that existed 400 million years ago.

Animated Life: Mary Leakey

This animated short video illustrates the life and work of paleoanthropologist Mary Leakey, including her discovery of the Laetoli footprints.

Gorongosa's Water Cycle

This animation illustrates the main stages of the water cycle in Gorongosa National Park, an ecosystem that experiences both wet and dry seasons.

The Origin of Flight: What Use Is Half a Wing?

In this video, biologist Ken Dial demonstrates that birds use their wings for more than just flying, which may help us understand how dinosaurs used their small wing-like limbs before the evolution of flight.

Your Inner Monkey

This film explores what human hands, vision, and brains reveal about our evolution from ancient primate ancestors.
