Fill in the blank and explain the statement.
At the end of glycolysis, ________ molecules are obtained.
At the end of glycolysis pyruvic acid, ATP, NADH2 and water molecules are obtained.
Glucose + 2Pi + 2ADP + 2NAD+ → 2 Pyruvate + 2ATP + 2NADH + 2H+ + 2H2O
2 pyruvate molecules are formed in the oxidation reaction. Oxidation reaction takes place via dehydrogenation and the product formed is NADH.
Amount of NADH produced is equal to the amount of pyruvate produced. In anaerobic conditions, lactates are formed. The final products are 2NADH, 2ATP, and 2 pyruvates.
