Question

What is anaerobic respiration? What happens during anaerobic respiration in yeast?


Solution

Anaerobic respiration is a type of respiration that occurs in absence of O2. The end products are mostly lactic acid and alcohol. It involves production of less energy only 2 ATP

C6H12O6 → Lactic acid /alcohol + energy

In anaerobic respiration of yeast pyruvate is converted to ethanol. Here pyruvate is decarboxylated to ethanol.
C6H12O6 ——> 2C2H5OH + 2CO2  + Energy
Glucose     -->  Ethanol + Carbon dioxide
