Lactic Acid Fermentation
Transcript of Lactic Acid Fermentation
Found specifically in human muscle cells
mainly after exercise
Occurs in the cytoplasm of a cell
Occurs in any Eukaryotes that lack oxygen Where does Lactic Acid Fermentation take place? Lactic acid fermentation occurs when a Eukaryotic cell lacks oxygen.
Builds up in muscles - usually during strenuous physical activity First, glycolosis produces NADH and ATP
Then, Lactic Acid Fermentation produces NAD+
Next, glycolosis charges NADH and ATP by using NAD+ which was produced in fermentation The Process of Lactic Acid Fermentation Lactic acid fermentation oxidizes NADH to NAD+ to produce lactate
Lactic acid fermentation could be used in making yogurt
It takes place by using the sugars glucose, sucrose, and fructose
CH3CH(OH)CO2H H+ + CH3CH(OH)CO2-Ka= 1.38 x 10-4
equation of equilibrium When does it happen? It happens after glycolosis in the Cellular Respiration process. lactic acid was Discovered in 1780 Bibliography
http://biology.clc.uc.edu/courses/bio104/cellresp.htm What is Lactic Acid fermentation? Lactic acid fermentation is the process through which sugars in food like milk or vegetables are converted into lactic acid, producing energy. By Carl Wilhelm Sum It Up! L.A.F is part of cellular respiration
process of making yogurt
caused by lack of oxygen in cell
sucrose, fructose, glucose
pyruvate to lactate
