Aerob respiration- Lactic Acid Fermentation
Generally, the lactic acid fermentation is done by bacteria. In certain Activity, lactic acid fermentation can also occur in our muscle cells. For Example, when we sprint our muscles, it is required a large amount of Oxygen to obtain more energy. When these muscles lack of oxygen, the muscles begin using lactic acid fermentation to obtain energy However, the amount of energy produced is not as much as the energy produced in An aerobic respiration.
Fermentation may cause lactic acid accumulation in muscle. In this Condition, the muscle becomes cramp and pain. Generally, the feeling will soon disappear when the muscle cells get enough oxygen.
It can be concluded that in anaerobic respiration, the last hydrogen acceptor is ethanol or lactic acid instead of oxygen. Energy produced from anaerobic respiration is 2 ATP from each of glucose molecule, which is less than the energy resulted from aerobic respiration. Look at the following Table
