when n organism such as a yeast lives by termentation, it converts the pyruvate from giycoiysis into a different compound, such as alcohol. why doesn't it secrete the pyruvate directly?
the conversion is needed to regenerate the NAD+ consumed during glycolysis
muscle soreness associated with strenuous exercise is at least partly due to
the presence of lactate produced during fermentation in muscle cells

the muscle contains large amounts of lactate following even mild physical exercise
Some friends are trying to make wine in their basement. They've added yeast to a sweet.grape juice mixture and has allowed yeast to grow. After several days they find that sugar a levels in the grape juice have dropped, but there's no alcohol in the mixture. The most likely explanation is that
the mixture needs more sugar, because yeast only produce alcohol in the absence of oxygen.
Yeast can produce ATP by either fermentation or oxidattive phosphorylation; they are
