From glycolysis, glucose produces a total of how many ATP?
Glycolysis is the process which occurs in cytosol in which of one molecule of glucose forms two molecules of pyruvate (pyruvic acid).
The overall reaction of glycolysis which occurs in the cytoplasm
represented simply as:
C6H12O6 + 2 NAD+ + 2 ADP + 2 P → 2 pyruvic acid+ 2 ATP + 2 NADH + 2 H+
Totally 9 steps are involved in the synthesis –pyruvic acid from glucose.
From glycolysis glucose produces 7 ATP.
Five ATP from two NADH entering electron transport and two ATP from direct phosphate transfer.
