Glycolysis Review•Remember, we ended up with_____________________________.What happens next depends on theoxygen status of the cell…•If adequate oxygen molecules are present, thenaerobic respiration will take place. (citric acid cycle,electron transport chain)•If adequate oxygen is absent, the anaerobicrespiration will take place. (____________________)
Lactic Acid Fermentation•Lactic acid fermentation is a form of anaerobic respiration.•The break down of glucose in theabsenceof oxygen.•Lactic acid fermentation consists of two phases:•1.Glycolysis•What was the end result of this process?•2.Lactic acid formation•Pyruvic acid is converted to lactic acid•This requires energy from the NADH that was produced in phase 3 of glycolysis•G3P being oxidized to form 1, 3 bisphosphoglyeric acid and NAD+ being reduced to NADH + H+---remember???(RXN 6)•Lactic acid fermentation produces:•Two molecules of lactic acid and two molecules of ATP for each glucose molecule•Why is lactic acid fermentation important to mention?
