Glycolysis- Steps, ATP generation and Significance

Fermentation and respiration are two major strategies for energy conservation in chemoorganotrophs. The glycolytic pathway is a major metabolic pathway for microbial fermentation which involves the catabolism of glucose into pyruvate. It is also called the Embden–Meyerhof–Parnas pathway for its … Read more
