- Does not involve an electron transport system to generate ATP
Can be acid fermentation or Alcohol fermentation.
- The net 2 ATP's generated during glycolysis are the 2 generated from fermentation.
- Depending on the type of bacteria, acids, alcohols, gases..(so2, H2, CH4 are generated.)
In- Sugar and 2 ATP
Out- 2 ATP and 2NADH + 2 H+ from Glycolysis (were not part of fermentation.)
Acid fermentation- Acid, CO2, H2, CH4
Alcohol Fermentation - Alcohol, + CO2
