Question

The final electron acceptor in lactic acid fermentation is:
  1. pyruvate
  2. lactic acid
  3. NAD+
  4. Oxygen


Solution

The correct option is A pyruvate
Lactic acid fermentation is a metabolic process by which glucose is converted into cellular energy and the metabolite lactate.
It is an anaerobic fermentation reaction that occurs in some bacteria and animal cells, such as muscle cells.
The process invovles the conversion of pyruvate into lactate in the presence of Lactate dehydrogenase and NADH.
