ANS:

  • Pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH) is required to convert pyruvate to acetyl-CoA. It occurs when glycolysis occur aerobically and the end product of glycolysis is pyruvate.
  • On the other hand, in anaerobic glycolysis, the end product is lactate (lactic acid). PDH is not involved.
  • Anaerobic glycolysis produces 2 molecules of lactate (lactic acid) and 2 ATPs.
  • Aldolase is involved both in aerobic and anaerobic glycolysis.
