Draw and label anaerobic respiration


Expert Answer

Step 1

It is required to determine anaerobic respiration.

Step 2

Anaerobic respiration is defined as the pathway where glucose is broken down to provide energy in absence of oxygen. Many anaerobic bacteria respire through the process of anaerobic respiration. Sometimes, when sufficient oxygen is not present in the environment, many eukaryotic cells switch from aerobic respiration to anaerobic respiration. 

Step 3

Anaerobic respiration takes place in two ways: Alcoholic fermentation and Lactic acid fermentation. During anaerobic respiration, glycolysis yields two ATP molecules and the product pyruvate is used during fermentation. Fermentation helps in the production of ethanol and Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) or lactate and N...
