In red blood corpuscles and muscles.


It is happening in places where mitochondria are not present. In humans, red blood corpuscles do not have mitochondria, that's why anaerobic respiration always happens in RBCs.

But in muscle cells, when there is a lack of oxygen, it happens as a result of the fact that lactic acid is produced.
