Lactic Acid Fermentation

    How does the absense of catalase cause lactic acid fermentation by bacteria? Also, what coenzymes/cytochromes do lactic acid-producing bacteria not have that may cause them to anaerobic?

    What is the action of catalase? Does that action have an effect on the fermentation?

    This document state what is missing in the lactic acid bacteria
