Problem: Which of the following is a result of glycolysis? A) a net loss of two ATPs per glucose molecule B) conversion of FAD to FADH2 C) conversion of glucose to two pyruvate molecules D) conversion of NADH to NAD+

FREE Expert Solution

Glycolysis: Oxidation of glucose into 3-carbon molecules

Overall reaction: Glucose (C6)+ 2 NAD+ + 2 ADP + Pi → 2 Pyruvate (C3) + 2 NADH + 2 ATP + 2 H2O + 4 H+
