Yeast respiration question

Post by godiva » Sun Sep 26, 2010 4:59 am

Describe the metabolic reaction (with single and overall reactions) for yeast wen oxygen is available and the glucose is decreasing gradually.

I'm not sure exactly what would happen. Would the cell respire aerobically or anaerobically for faster growth even though there is oxygen. Does a diauxic shift happen here? It doesn't mention a second energy source, but if I were to assume one, then why would a diauxic shift happen?

well, if is oxygen available, the yeast has no reason to grow anaerobically because then it would get much less energy from unit food. So just look how is glucose broken down to CO2

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
