Answer: 
Cori cycle: The cycle that involves the synthesis of glucose in the liver from the skeletal muscle lactate and the reuse of glucose synthesised by muscle for energy is knowm as cori cycle. REF:BIOCHEMISTRY-Dr.U.Satyanarayana and Dr.U.Chakrapani.3rd EDITION .Page-262

Answer: 
Latic acid formed in anaerobic Degradation in the muscle reaches the liver through blood circulation. In liver 80%o f lactic acid is utilised in resysnthesis of glycogen which is transported back to muscle. This cylcle is referred to a CORI CYCLE http://www.elmhurst.edu/~chm/vchembook/615coricycle.html

Answer: 
The Cori cycle, named after its discoverers, Carl Cori and Gerty Cori, refers to the metabolic pathway in which lactate produced by anaerobic glycolysis in the muscles moves to the liver and is converted to glucose, which then returns to the muscles and is converted back to lactate
