Aerobic respiration in the mitochondria produces ATP which can be used in active transport, cell division etc.

Animals process nutrients in order to provide energy for metabolic activities, such as growth and movement.
For example glucose is a product that has been broken down and then enters glycolysis and the Krebs cycle in order to carry out respiration. Respirations produces ATP through these processes and oxidative phosphorylation.
And then ATP is used to provide energy for all sort of reactions so that the animal cell can grow and move etc.
