Yeasts are a form of eukaryotic microorganisms classified in the kingdom Fungi, with approximately 1, species known. They reproduce asexually by budding mainly, although some species reproduce by binary fission.
They are unicellular, although some species with yeast forms may become multicellular due to way in which they normally reproduce.
The yeast species Saccharomyces cerevisiae has been used in baking and fermenting alcoholic beverages for thousands of years. It is also extremely important as a model organism in modern cell biology research, and is the most thoroughly researched eukaryotic microorganism.
Researchers can use it to gather information into the biology of the eukaryotic cell and human biology. These microbes are thought to be one of the first domesticated organisms.
People have used yeast for fermentation and baking throughout history.
Archaeologists digging in Egyptian ruins found early grinding stones and baking chambers for yeasted bread, as well as drawings of 4,year-old bakeries and breweries. It has many uses in the production of certain productsthese include; Alcoholic beverages, Beer, Root beers, Soda, Distilled drinks, Wine, Baking, Bioremediation process that uses microorganisms, fungi, green plants or their enzymes to return the environment to its original stateNutritional supplements, Science and Probiotics dietary supplements.
Yeasts are chemoorganotrophs as they use organic compounds as a source of energy and do not require light to grow. The main source of carbon is obtained by hexose sugars such as glucose and fructose, or disaccharides such as sucrose and maltose. Anaerobic respiration occurs when no free oxygen is present to remove the hydrogen.
This therefore means the electron transport chain cannot continue to function and no more ATP can be produced via oxidative phosphorylation. Hence why a form of respiration is required without the need for oxygen.
Anaerobic respiration or fermentation as it is called when referring to some plant species including yeast. This process does not require oxygen. Instead of oxygen reaction with the hydrogen to continue the processes such as the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation, another substance is used.
The hydrogen produced from the reduction of NAD is converted to ethanal. This frees up another NAD which allows glycolysis to continue. This process is done by an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase.
This process from glucose to ethanol is referred to as alcoholic fermentation. The difference between anaerobic respiration and fermentation is the ability to recover from the effects. In anaerobic respiration the lactate build up can be removed in oxygen debt.
However the effects of fermentation are permanent. Enzymes are fundamental to all metabolic pathways in respiration and anaerobic respiration, especially key in the ethanol pathway, whereby ethanal is converted to ethanol via an enzyme called alcohol dehydrogenase.
The lock and key mechanism describes enzyme catalyzed reactions. Similar to the role of alcohol dehydrogenase in the fermentation of yeast. The lock and key theory has substrate molecules and enzymes.In this lesson, we'll explain the basic steps of cellular respiration.
Then we'll go over why temperature has an effect on this process, what the optimal temperature is for yeast and how you can.

The yeast will produce the most cellular respiration at an optimum temperature. This temperature will be at a normal room temperature. If the temperature of the environment surrounding the yeast is too low, the rate will decrease, because the molecules involved in the process of cellular respiration will slow down resulting in lesser rate.
The results show that as temperature increased the rate of respiration in yeast increased. This happened to an extent until around 50ï¿½C when some enzymes .
The Effect on the Rate of Respiration of Yeast Cells with Glucose when the Temperature is Varied Aim The aim of the experiment is to investigate the effect of temperature on the rate of respiration of yeast cells with glucose.
