  • Anaerobic respiration in Mammals and Yeast
    • Only uses Glycolysis
      • NADH ==> NAD
    • The two ways of reoxidising NAD
      • Fungi use ethanol fermentation
        • The Pyruvate looses a Carbon dioxide molecule and becomes ethanal. this accepts hydrogen from the NADH and the ethanal reduces to ethanol.
      • Animals use lactate Fermentation
        • Lactate Dehysrogena-se  catalyses the oxidation of NADH in which pyruvate accepts hydrogen atoms and is reduced to lactate.
      • Both these produce 2 ATP during glycolysis
