Problem: Cellular respiration catabolizes food molecules to produce ATP. A glucose molecule was imported into the cytosol of a human cell. Which catabolic process can this glucose molecule immediately enter?A. Pyruvate OxidationB. GlycolyisC. The Krebs cycleD. Electron Transport ChainE. Alcohol Fermentation

FREE Expert Solution

The metabolism of glucose molecules, as they enter the cells, is initiated in the cytosol, and is completed towards ATP synthesis that are mostly done as product of oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria.
