The glycolytic pathway in boar sperm is sensitive to pH, which decreases as lactate is produced from either glucose or fructose in vitro. The build up of lactate appears to be due to the saturation of mitochondrial lactate transporters, which causes the cytoplasmic pH to fall. Phosphofructokinase has been shown to be sensitive to this drop in pH rather than to the build up of lactate ions or ATP, thereby controlling the rate of glycolysis in vitro.
