Electrons and hydrogen ions from the NADH that was produced by glycolysis are donated to another organic molecule. •N o m o r e ATP is created through these additional steps. So essentially… fermentation = glycolysis + recycling of NAD + Image: Glycolysis , Regis Frey From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Muscles & Lactic Acid Fermentation _____ and ______ Twitch Muscle Muscle contains both slow twitch fibers and fast twitch fibers. Slow twitch fibers contract and fatigue more slowly than fast twitch muscle fibers. Most of us have about 50% slow twitch fibers and 50% fast twitch fibers. Long-distance runners often have more slow twitch fibers while sprinters or bodybuilders often have more fast twitch fibers. But what is the difference between slow and fast twitch muscle?

Slow and Fast Twitch Muscle Poultry: White Meat & Dark Meat White meat is ______ twitch muscle. Dark meat is ______ twitch muscle. It is dark because it contains an oxygen storing protein called __________. Slow twitch muscles tend to be wing and leg muscles where long term endurance is required. Fast twitch muscles more common in the breast where quick response but not necessarily endurance is needed. Wild animals tend to have more slow twitch muscle than their domestic counterparts.

Fermentation Most of the potential energy remains in the bonds of fermentation products. Fermentation products are wastes to cells that make them, many are useful to humans (ethanol, acetic acid, and lactic acid). From the Virtual Cell Biology Classroom on ScienceProfOnline.com

Souring vs. Spoilage Fermentation of carbohydrates to organic acid products is commonly called _________ . Sour cream, cheese, and yogurt are produced by the action of fermenting bacteria. Lactic-acid bacteria of the genus Lactobacillus are used in the fermentation process. Bacteria convert lactose to lactic acid, which causes milk to change from liquid to solid curd. __________ , or putrification, is when microbes use anaerobic respiration to break down proteins , releasing nitrogen and sulfur- containing organic compounds.
