Match each product of pyruvate metabolism with the condition under which it is produced.


Part A PRODUCTS of pyruvate metabolism Match each product of pyruvate metabolism with the condition under which it is produce

Answer

Lactate Ethanol acetyl co~A
Fermentation in skeletal muscle Fermentation in yeast and bacteria aerobic oxidation

Explanation: Acetyl co~A is used in kreb cycle in mitochondria. This kreb cycel synthesises NADH and FADH2. They transfer electron to electron transport chain. The oxygen is reduced to water via these electrons and hydrogen ion. That’s why this is the case of awrobic respiration. The pyruvate is converted into lactate via lactic acid fermentation in muscles. Because oxygen supply decreases in muscles. The ethnaol is produced from pyruvate via ethanolic fermentation. This is done by pyruvate dehydrogenase enzyme.
