Fermentation in the human body

Post by kk » Mon Jan 29, 2018 10:27 am

I know that lactic acid fermentation is possible in muscle cells and mature red blood cells. My questions would be 1) all muscle cell types are able to perform lactic acid fermentation? 2) is there any other type of fermentation that a human cell (!) is able to perform in the body?

Lactic acid fermentation is the type of anaerobic respiration carried out by yogurt bacteria (Lactobacillus and others) and by your own muscle cells when you work them hard and fast.
