Explain the Steps of Glycolysis.
- Glycolysis is the first step of aerobic/anaerobic respiration and occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell.
- In this process, a molecule of glucose is oxidized in a stepwise manner to form two molecules each of pyruvic acid, ATP, NADH2 and water.
- Pyruvic acid formed during this process is converted into acetyl-coenzyme A with the release of two molecules each of NADH2 and CO2. This acetyl-coenzyme A then enters the Krebs cycle.
