Yeast can grow both aerobically and anaerobically on glucose. Explain why the rate of glucose consumption decreases when yeast cells that have been maintained under anaerobic conditions are exposed to oxygen.
Lactic acid can only be produced in the presence of O2.

B. reduce FAD+ to FADH2
C. oxidize NADH to NAD+
D. reduce FADH2 to FAD+
E. do none of the above
Fermentation of sugars by yeast results in the formation of which of the following molecule(s)?
B. Lactic Acid
E. Acetyl CoA
H. Carbon dioxide
Suppose you discovered a mutant yeast whose glycolytic pathway was shorter because of the presence of a new enzyme catalyzing the following reaction:
Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + H2O + NAD+ → NADH + H+ + 3-phosphoglycerate
Which of the following changes would you expect to find in the growth and metabolism of the mutant yeast?
A. The mutation will cause the yeast to grow faster under aerobic conditions.
B. The formation of pyruvate from glucose will be energetically more favorable.
C. The formation of pyruvate from glucose will be energetically less favorable.
D. The mutation will cause the yeast to grow faster under anaerobic conditions.
E. The mutant will not grow under anaerobic conditions.
F. The mutant will not grow under aerobic conditions.
At first glance, fermentation of pyruvate to lactate might appear to be an optional add-on reaction to glycolysis. After all, couldn't cells growing in the absence of oxygen simply disregard pyruvate as a waste product? In the absence of fermentation, which products deried from glycolysis would accumulate in cells under anaerobic conditions? Could the metabolism of glucose via the glycolytic pathway continue in the absence of oxygen in cells that cannot carry out fermentation? Why or why not?
Fermentation of a glucose molecule has the potential to produce a net number of _____ ATPs.

A. product; substrate
B. oxidized; reduced
C. substrate; product
D. cation; anion
E. reduced; oxidized

Yeasts and many bacteria are facultative anaerobes that is, they make ATP by fermentation in the absence of oxygen, but if oxsygen is present, they can undergo aerobic respiration. Why would it be advantageous for them to be able to make ATP by aerobic respiration? Hint: Compare the amount of ATP produced in each process.
the net products of anaerobic respiration are
A. 2 ATP, NAD+, either lactic acid or ethanol and CO2.
B. 2 ATP, NADH, either lactic acid or ethanol and CO2.
C. 2 ATP, NADH, ethanol and CO2.
D. 4 ATP, NAD+, either lactic acid or ethanol and CO2.

No O2 was necessary for the citric acid cycle.
During oxygen debt, why would muscle cells choose lactic acid fermentation (which produces no ATP) over sending the pyruvate molecules to the citric acid cycle (2 more ATP molecules)?
a. Muscle cells do not have mitochondria
b. The ATP produced in the citric acid cycle cannot be used for cellular work
c. The production of CO2 in the citric acid cycle is detrimental to the cell
d. The citric acid cycle does not provide a mechanism for oxidizing NADH back to NAD+

a. Fermentation is a quicker process
b. Muscle cells don’t need energy, they just want to get rid of excess glucose
c. Lactic acid has a positive effect on muscle cell function
d. There is not enough O2 in the cells to perform cellular respiration
