The correct sequence of anaerobic reactions in yeast is
Anaerobic means in the absence of oxygen. Anaerobic respiration takes places completely in the cytoplasm.
- The breakdown of glucose into pyruvate takes place in the cytoplasm .
- Pyruvate breaks down into lactic acid/ethanol in the cytoplasm .
Note: Aerobic respiration takes place in the mitochondria. While the breakdown of glucose into pyruvate also takes place in the cytoplasm, Pyruvate breaks down into CO 2 +H 2 O inside mitochondria.
The correct answer is(d)
