Fermentation is the process of deriving energy from the oxidation of organic compounds, such as carbohydrates, using an endogenous electron acceptor, which is usually an organic compound [1].

change in an organic substance caused by a ferment, such as souring of milk, with little or no oxygen involved, that is, anaerobic respiration

Alcohol fermentation is the formation of alcohol from sugar. Yeast, when under anaerobic conditions, convert glucose to pyruvic acid via the glycolysis pathways, then go one step farther, converting pyruvic acid into ethanol, a C-2 compound.

Alcoholic Fermentation
There is another way that the NADH molecule can be re-oxidized. Anaerobic conditions in yeast convert pyruvate to carbon dioxide and ethanol.

fermentation A catabolic process that produces a characteristic product such as lactic acid or ethanol. Without an electron transport chain, fermentation makes a limited amount of ATP from glucose. See: respiration.

Fermentation is needed to regenerate NAD+ from NADH so that at least some ATP can be made in glycolysis.
Electrons from NADH are added to pyruvate (reduction) to produce alcohol (plants, yeast) or lactate (animals, bacteria) ...

fermentation an anaerobic process in which energy can be released from glucose even though oxygen is not available; occurs in yeast cells.

- A process of growing microorganisms to produce various chemical or pharmaceutical compounds. Microbes are usually incubated under specific conditions in large tanks called fermenters. Fermentation is a specific type of bioprocessing.

fermentation (alcoholic) A type of anaerobic respiration that yields carbon dioxide and alcohol; used in commercial fermentation processes, including production of raised bakery dough products and alcoholic beverages.

Direct hydration: using ethene or other alkenes from cracking of fractions of distilled crude oil.

Fermentation the breakdown of organic molecules in the absence of oxygen
Fertilisation the fusion of male and female gametes during the process of sexual reproduction to produce a zygote ...

Fermentation and cellular respiration are anaerobic and aerobic alternatives, respectively, for producing ATP from sugars.

1856 - Louis Pasteur states that microorganisms produce fermentation.
1858 - Charles R. Darwin and Alfred Wallace independently propose natural selection theories of evolution.


At high D (greater than 0.3/hour), yeast cells switch their metabolism from pure respiration to a mix of fermentation and respiration.

Feedback inhibition Fen-Phen FermentationAnaerobic decomposition of an organic compound (e.g., glucose) by a living organism.

That which causes fermentation, as yeast, barm, or fermenting beer.
ferments are of two kinds: (a) formed or organised ferments. (b) unorganised or structureless ferments. The latter are also called soluble or chemical ferments, and enzymes.

There are some cells like yeast that will do a different form of fermentation called alcoholic fermentation, ...

It's a whole process called fermentation. Sugars are broken down in an environment without oxygen. It's called anaerobic fermentation. And voila, alcohol. Even though they are single celled, you may find them in colonies.

Anaerobic respiration (both glycolysis and fermentation) takes place in the fluid portion of the cytoplasm whereas the bulk of the energy yield of aerobic respiration takes place in the mitochondria.

Anaerobic respiration (fermentation)
Substrate-level phosphorylation: 2ADP + 2Pi → 2ATP directly by enzymes in glycolysis
