Under aerobic conditions, the intermediate product of glycogenolysis, pyruvic acid, follows an aerobic glycolysis pathway and eventually participates in the Citric-acid cycle or "Krebs cycle" that provides substrates (16 H+) for the oxidative phosphorylation. This oxidative phosphorylation provides a large amount of energy for the cells. Under anaerobic conditions, pyruvic acid follows a different route, the anaerobic glycolysis pathway, and the end-product of this complex cascade of reactions results in accumulation of lactate.
