Anaerobic respiration

HideShow resource information
Anaerobic respiration in plants
Pyruvate + reduced NAD --> NAD + ethanol + CO2
1 of 5
Anaerobic respiration in animals
Pyruvate + reduced NAD --> lactate + NAD
2 of 5
Why does lactate production occur in muscles?
hard exercise as oxygen is more rapidly used up than it can be supplied
3 of 5
Why is the amount of ATP synthesised in anaerobic respiration less than aerobic?
The only ATP formed in anaerobic respiration is from glycolysis and pyruvate is not available in the Krebs cycle or ETC.
