What Is Lactic Acid Fermentation Where Does It Occur?

Answer

Lactic acid fermentation happens when the pyruvic acid from glycolysis is reduced to lactic acid by NADH, which is oxidized into NAD+. This allows glycolysis to continue by ensuring that NADH returns to its oxidized state of NAD+. Lactic acid fermentation commonly occurs in muscle cells.
