An excerpt from the book: Anaerobic respiration is how cells make energy when, as you may have guessed from the name, there is no available oxygen. In fact, for this process there is neither oxygen nor mitochondria present. The two processes that allow this to work are those of glycolysis and fermentation. In cellular respiration, what we normally see is glucose breaks down to pyruvate and from this process we net 2 ATP. Next, the pyruvate will go into the mitochondria and enter the Krebs cycle. In the process of being converted to acetyl CoA, CO2 is given off and another 2 ATP are made. This energy is stored in NADH and FADH2. Their electrons move into the electron transport chain which will move to oxygen to transform the product to water. In this, 23-34 ATP are made.
