Respiration - Glycolysis

HideShow resource information

This is also known as the common pathway because both aerobic and anaerobic respiration share this step. Glycoysis is part one of four steps of cellular respiration. It is the only step that occurs in the cytoplasm.

1. A glucose molecule is phosphorylated. This is done by hydrolysing an ATP molecule. Resulting in an ADP + Pi. The phosphate attaches to the glucose.

2. We now have glucose phosphate.

3. An enzyme called isomerase changes the bio chemical structure to fructose phosphate.

4. This molecule is then phosphorylated. ATP to ADP + Pi, where the phospate attaches itself to the fructose phosphate.

5. We now have a…
