Fermentation

Description

Fermentation is the process of energy metabolism used to supply ATP, where redox balance is maintained with internally produced electron acceptors (such as pyruvate or fumarate), without the use of external electron acceptors (such as O2). Fermentation thus contrasts with cell respiration and is an anaerobic process, but aerobic fermentation may proceed in the presence of oxygen.
