It is known that both pyruvate and lactate are the end products of the anaerobic glycolysis.
Under various conditions, mammalian sperm provide their energy requirements by anaerobic glycolysis, aerobic glycolysis and beta oxidation of endogenous substrates (including fatty acids).
Soccer players sometimes, even after a short break, need to produce a high power output because they should be ready for repeating rapid explosive activities that are supported by anaerobic glycolysis.
Short, intense activity where anaerobic glycolysis is increased may assist in reducing post exercise hypoglycemic episodes in type 1 diabetics.
Oddly enough, in spite of the availability of ample oxygen, erythrocytes employ anaerobic glycolysis and produce lactate.
When cells have a limited supply of oxygen (hypoxia), they utilize anaerobic glycolysis to generate ATP, and pyruvate is reduced to the end product lactate.
