________ is the main respiratory substrate

Answer:

Glucose is the main respiratory substrate.

Respiratory substrates are the molecules that are oxidized during the course of respiration. Carbohydrates, particularly glucose, serve as a source of respiratory substrate.  Based on the physiological state of an organism’s body, proteins, fats and organic acids may also serve as respiratory substrates.
