Under what circumstance(s) would it be beneficial for organisms to be able to perform a catabolic reaction in an aerobic environment (access to oxygen) and an anaerobic environment (lack of oxygen)?
Other than yeast, give an example of an organism that can switch between cellular respiration and fermentation depending on the environment.
What are the benefits and/or drawbacks of being able to perform both metabolic reactions?
These solutions may offer step-by-step problem-solving explanations or good writing examples that include modern styles of formatting and construction of bibliographies out of text citations and references. Students may use these solutions for personal skill-building and practice. Unethical use is strictly forbidden.There are two major types of metabolic reactions: anabolic and catabolic. The catabolic reactions are associated with the production and consumption of energy. It is a well-known fact that catabolic reactions break down large organic molecules (glucose, lipids, proteins) into small ones, releasing on that way free energy that is contained in the chemical bonds and about half of that energy is transferred or used for synthesis of the high energy molecule - ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is considered as the greatest source of energy in every...
