I am well aware of traditional anaerobic respiration (lactic acid or alcohol produced - no Krebs cycle) and traditional aerobic respiration (O2 is used at the end of the Citric acid cycle). I am ...
In animals temporary anaerobic respiration leads to the breakdown of the pyruvate formed by glycolysis into lactate. The buildup of lactate in the bloodstream is accompanied by a large number of ...
I am sorry if this is not appropriate for this site, but I think it fits so I am asking it here: I went for a run yesterday, and it was about -8⁰C. I was wearing a couple pairs of shorts, a t-shirt ...
Beside many anaerobic single cell organisms, there are some annelid worms that are obligate anaerobic at least in their early development stages. Probably, due to low concentration levels in nature, ...
E. coli has two oxygen sensors: FNR (fumarate-nitrate reductase) and ArcBA (Anoxic Redox Control, two component control systems). FNR directly senses the oxygen, while the interaction of ArcB with ...
As I understand during anaerobic respiration, the electrons received from the decomposition of glucose are transferred to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and flavin adenine dinucleotide. As there is ...
I'm studying for my intro to microbiology test and I have a question asking why a culture of yeast responsible for producing alcohol would be growing, but not producing alcohol? The multiple choice ...
I was discussing with my friends the 100 meter sprint. Somehow, the topic changed to decreasing the time that the sprint would require: What parts of the human body could you feasibly remove to set a ...
