What condition must exist in cell for fermentation to occur?
When a cell does not have enough oxygen for respiration is when fermentation occurs. ...

Where does lactic acid fermentation occur in the mitochondria?
Lactic acid fermentation does not occur in the mitochondria. It occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell and occurs directly after glycolysis if oxygen is not present ...
Type of fermentation used by muscle cells?
muscle cell do not undergo fermentation but anaerobic respiration which is the incomplete break down of glucose to energy and lattic acid; fermentation only occur in plant or anaerobic bacteria such as yeast. ...

Where does fermentation occur in an animal cell?
Fermentation occurs in the cytoplasm. In animals, fermentation involves the conversion of pyruvate into lactate. This is a single reaction, catalyzed by the enzyme lactate dehydrogenase. The reaction takes place in the cytosol (the fluid part of the cytoplasm). ...
Asked in Biology
What factor can you determine which of the two pathways that follow glycolysis a cell might follow?
If there is sufficient oxygen available, a cell will undergo aerobic cellular respiration. If there is insufficient oxygen available, or the cell cannot use oxygen, then either lactic acid fermentation or alcoholic fermentation will occur, depending on the type of cell. ...
Asked in Biology
Fermentation in chemiosmosis?
No, fermentation and chemiosmosis are completely different processes; after glycolysis, these processes will occur depending on the presence of oxygen. Chemiosmosis would occur when oxygen is presented. While fermentation would occur if oxygen is not available. ...
How are lactic acid fermentation and alcoholic fermentation similar and different?
Both occur anaerobically. Lactic acid fermentation would occur in muscle and ethanol fermentation would occur by yeast. The end products are different of course as one produces lactic acid and the other ethanol. ... ...
