FermentationGenerating ATP without oxygen!

Some biochemistryWhen a cell generates large amounts of ATP through glycolysis NADH does not get converted back to NAD+Without NAD+ the cell cannot keep glycolysis going and ATP production stops

More biochemistryFermentation allows for glycolysis to produce a steady supply of ATP by converting NADH to NAD+ Fermentation is a process that regenerates NAD+. This allows glycolysis to continue producing ATPFermentation is an anaerobic process (does not require oxygen)Alcoholic FermentationPyruvic acid + NADH Alcohol +CO2 + NAD+ Occurs in yeasts and other organisms

Muscle cells in humans are well-designed to produce ATP through lactic acid fermentationhttp://popcrush.com/justin-bieber-muscles/Cellular Respiration vs. FermentationThe combined processes of glycolysis and fermentation produces 2 ATP molecules per 1 molecule of glucoseCellular respiration (which includes glycolysis) produces about 38 molecules of ATP per molecule of glucose
