Problem: the net products of anaerobic respiration areA. 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.

FREE Expert Solution

There are many known mechanisms by which cells oxidize fuel without the actual use of oxygen. These are generally known as fermentation reactions. These consist of glycolysis and reactions that can regenerate NAD+ by redox. Two types of fermentation are alcohol fermentation and lactic acid fermentation.
