This video is used to highlight the purpose and mechanism of Anaerobic respiration. Anaerobic respiration is used in low oxygen conditions, including extensive running, strenuous exercise, and deep underwater diving. Like Aerobic respiration, Anaerobic respiration uses glucose molecules to extract usable energy, via Glycolysis, Kreb's Cycle, and the Electron Transport Chain (ETC). In the case of Anaerobic respiration, the electron receptors present along the ETC are those that are less oxidizing than Oxygen. This substitution yields a decreased amount of ATP compared to Aerobic respiration, but still serves as a sufficient supply of energy in order for the organism to perform longer than regular respiration allows. An extended use of anaerobic respiration causes build up of lactic acid in the muscles, which hinders it's performance and causes soreness and cramps. In order to overcome this pain, breathing is required as it diffuses the lactic acid that has been produced, and provides the muscles with Oxygen once again.
