Anaerobic respiration. Definition

Medical Definition: anaerobic respiration

The energy produced by oxidation, as with the end products of glucose cleavage. Glycolysis, ie the fraction of the glucose molecule to form two molecules of pyruvic acid, is anaerobic and release very little energy. Usually the pyruvic acid enters the mitochondria in muscle cells and reacts with O2 is insufficient, most of the pyruvic acid turns into lactic acid, forming large amounts of ATP without spending any of O2.
