Since no one has answered this question, I will say what little I remember for high school biology.

The simple answer goes like this.  

ATP is produced by anaerobic respiration of inorganic compounds in the cytosol (a liquid in the cytoplasm) of some prokaryotic cells.

ATP is produces by the anaerobic respiration of glucose in the cytosol of some prokaryotic cells.

Much more ATP is produced by the aerobic respiration of glucose along a membrane in the mitochondria of probably all eukaryotic cells.
