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]

ummmm..... since no one has posted anything in a while, I guess I'll go.

What is the process of converting glucose into energy called?

What is the font type and minimum font size used when labeling nutrition facts?

Name 2 simple carbohydrates and 2 complex carbohydrates. Also specify whether the carbohydrates you mention are monosaccharides, disaccharides, Oligosaccharides, or Polysaccharides.

I probably won't even be able to come up with good and challenging questions but I'll try 😐

Which sugar is the C-4 epimer of glucose?

Which enzyme breaks down fructose?

Where does fermentation occur?(Be specific)
