Cori cycle (also see Energy production)

Also known as the lactic acid cycle, this describes the process whereby glucose is recycled when there is insufficient oxygen for normal glucose metabolism via the Krebs cycle. In the Cori cycle, blood glucose is converted to lactic acid, which is then converted back to glucose or glycogen.
