What is glycolysis?

Glycolysis is the principal pathway of glucose metabolism occurs in the cytoplasm of all cells where glucose is oxidized to pyruvate (in aerobic condition) or lactate (in anaerobic condition) and generates energy in the form of ATP. Types of glycolysis pathway: Glycolysis pathways are two types; Aerobic glycolysis – Aerobic glycolysis occurs in cells with [Continue]

Glycolysis Cycle

Glycolysis Degradation of Glucose to Pyruvate Glycolysis definition:- In all living organisms, the initial phase of respiratory metabolism involves degradation of glucose in to pyruvate. The steps involved in the degradation were studied and explained by three biochemists namely Emden, Meyerhof and Parnas, therefore, it is also called EMP pathway. The enzymes for breakdown of [Continue]
