Let's get this marathon started!

1. What is the name of the enzyme responsible for converting pyruvate into lactate?
2. In conditions where oxygen is not widely available, what metabolic pathway do animal muscle cells undergo?
3. What does ATP stand for, what type of macromolecule is it, and why is it important to cells?

[hide]1. Lactic Acid Dehydrogenase
2. Lactic Acid Fermentation
3. Adenosine Triphosphate. It is a nucleic acid. It is important to the cells because it is the main source of energy for many cellular cycles and processes.[/hide]
