Does anyone know the answer to this question:

What are the differences between anaerobic and aerobic glucose degradation?

If anyone is doing / has done Unit 13 Biochemistry and Biochemical techniques your help on this unit would be a life saver!!! literally!

Please help ASAP!!

1. anaerobic glucose degradation (GD) produces lactate acid whereas aerobic doesnt (since anaerobic respiration involves the reduction of pyruvate to produce lactate, whereas in aerobic respiration pyruvate is used in link reaction)

2. anaerobic GD doesn't produce CO2 and H20, but aerobic GD does because in anaerobic GD pyruvate is reduced to lactate, but in anaerobic GD the pyruvate undergoes link reaction, then krebs cycle (to produce CO2) then in electron transport chain H20 is formed.

3. anaerobic GD produces only a net of 2 ATP molecules (as only glycolysis occurs here followed by reduction of pyruvate) but in aerobic respiration many ATP molecules are formed.
