What are the end products of anaerobic respiration?
The end products of anaerobic respiration are Lactic acid or ethanol and ATP molecules. Anaerobic respiration takes place in the absence of oxygen and is seen in lower animals. During the process of Anaerobic Respiration in prokaryotes, there is a breakdown of glucose to produce energy for cellular activities.
The overall chemical equation for anaerobic respiration is:
C6H12O6 → C3H6O3
Lactic acid fermentation:
C6H12O6+ 2ADP+ 2PHOSPHATE → 2C3H6O3 + 2ATP
C6H12O6 + 2ADP + 2PHOSPHAT→ 2C2H5OH + 2CO2+ 2ATP
