Fate of Pyruvate: Acetyl CoA, Lactate, Alcohol Formation.

After the formation of Pyruvate through the glycolysis pathway, it may enter into different pathways such as; lactate fermentation in muscles and rbc, alcohol fermentation, and acetyl CoA fermentation (acetyl CoA then enters into TCA cycle to generate energy), or it may enter in biosynthetic pathways such as gluconeogenesis and fatty acid synthesis.
