Describe the process by which lactic acid accumulates in the muscle cells during vigorous exercise Give its equation and name the enzyme

Asked by 23rd January 2014, 4:06 PM
Answered by Expert
Lactic acid accumulation in muscle cells takes place due to anaerobic respiration that occurs during vigorous exercise. During anaerobic respiration, glucose is broken down in the absence of oxygen to produce lactic acid and some amount of energy (2 ATP). There is not just a single enzyme involved in anaerobic respiration in muscle cells. A series of chemical reactions takes place, each involving a different unique enzyme.
