What is Glycolysis
A universal pathway that splits glucose into two 3 carbon molecules named Pyruvate.
. It requires 10 steps in the cytoplasm non of which require O2
Because glycolysis does not require o2 it can be in
Glycolysis can take place in aerobic and anaerobic environments
Describe the first 5 steps of Glycolisis
ATP is used to activate glucose redistributing energy in the molecule and splitting it in half.
The last 5 steps of Glycolysis
Stores some energy in 2 molecules of electron carrier, NADH.
Other steps extract more of the energy, regaining the two ATP molecules invested earlier plus producing two more.
The net gain of Gly
2 NADHS per molecule of glucose
2 ATPS '' ''
The means by which Glycolysis produces ATP.
A high energy donor molecule enzyme physically transfers a phosphate group to ADP,forming ATP
The opposite of Substrate-Level Phosphorylation
