  • Glycolysis
    • Glucose is activated by phosphorylation.
      • The phosphate molecules come from the hydrolysis of two ATP molecules.
        • This provides the energy to activate glucose
      • Each glucose molecule is then split into two 3-carbon molecules known as triose phosphate.
        • Hydrogen is removed from each of the triose phosphate molecules and transferred to a hydrogen carrier known as NAD. This makes NADH.
          • Enzyme controlled reactions convert each triose phosphate into another 3-carbon molecule called pyruvate.
            • This then results in two molecules of ATP being regenerated from ADP.
