What do alcohol fermentation, acetyl CoA formation, and the Krebs cycle have in common?

1 Answer

All have common glycolysis.


  1. The glycolysis is the breakdown of six carbon compound into two molecules of three carbon compound i.e., pyruvic acid. It is common for both aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
  2. In the anaerobic fermentation, alcohol is formed, while before entering into "Krebs Cycle'', the three carbon compound is converted into two carbon compound Acetyl CoA by releasing one carbon molecule. Thank you
