    Generation of ATP during anaerobic metabolism is accomplished through glycolysis. For every mole of glucose that enters the glycolytic pathway, 2 moles of ATP are generated. The pyruvate, which is the end product of glycolysis then proceeds to alcoholic fermentation to produce ethanol and carbon dioxide in a 2-step process shown ...

    Solution Summary

    Anaerobic respiration in yeast is emphasized.
