Textbook Problem

Continued strenuous activity can cause lactate to accumulate in muscles. After the activity stops, the lactate is converted into pyruvate and used as an energy source. Explain how pyruvate can be used to produce ATP.

Summary Introduction

To explain: How the pyruvate can be used to produce ATP.

Concept introduction:

Cellular respiration is a biological process during which the chemical energy of food is released and gets converted in the form of ATP.  Cellular respiration can utilize carbohydrates, fats, and proteins as fuels. It occurs in four major steps: glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation, citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is a high-energy molecule which helps to store the energy.
