  • The link reaction
    • The pyruvate produced in glycolysis is oxidised by removing hydrogen.
      • This hydrogen is accepted by NAD to form NADH, which is later used to produce ATP.
      • The 2-carbon molecule, called an acetyl group, that is formed combines with coenzyme A to produce acetyl coenzyme A.
        • A carbon dioxide molecule is created from each molecule of pyruvate.
