Introduction: Glycolysis

Description of Glycolysis

Glycolysis: called the Embden-Meyerhoff or glycolytic pathway in which glucose is anaerobically catabolized into the simpler compounds lactic acid or pyruvic acid, resulting in energy stored in the form of ATP.
Source: CRISP

Glycolysis: A metabolic process that converts GLUCOSE into two molecules of PYRUVIC ACID through a series of enzymatic reactions. Energy generated by this process is conserved in two molecules of ATP. Glycolysis is the universal catabolic pathway for glucose, free glucose, or glucose derived from complex CARBOHYDRATES, such as GLYCOGEN and STARCH.
