Why are the Krebs Cycle and electron transport pathways downregulated during period of high ATP demand?

Has something to do with pyruvate and lactate...

  • Biochemistry -

    because during periods of high ATP demand an immediate source of atp is required (which could be obtained with glycolysis);.
