How does cellular respiration interact with glycolysis?
- The process of cellular respiration is actually many separate reactions, which can be divided into three stages: glycolysis, the Krebs Cycle, and the electron transport chain.
- During glycolysis, glucose is split into two 3-carbon pyruvate molecules, using 2 ATP but generating 4 ATP, for a net gain of 2 ATP.
- During glycolysis, 2 NADH are also produced.
