Ok, I copied and pasted this to my lab instructor , " got a question. Is glucose oxidized to pyruvate regardless of oxygen being present or not? With the presence of oxygen, does it go to the Krebs Cycle and without it............what? It is oxidized into a lactate or is that completely wrong?

Her reply was, "Oxygen has to be present for pyruvate to be oxidized. If there is no oxygen present, fermentation occurs. Lactic acid is a by-product of fermentation. Does that help?"

I'll take her word on it since she is the one passing out the grades.

the way i see this

glucose (with or without oxygen)-->pyruvate

pyruvate(with oxygen)-->Krebs cycle

pyruvate(without oxygen)-->fermentation

so, both question is correct
