Glycolysis Terms Adenisine Triphosphate (ATP) - The molecule from which cells derive energy. Comprised of an adenisine molecule bonded to three phosphates, each phosphate bond contains energy, especially the third bond. By breaking that one bond and reducing ATP to adenisine di phosphate (ADP), the cell can get the energy to carry out its various processes. Alcohol dehydrogenase - The glycolytic enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reaction that converts acetaldehyde to ethanol in the alcoholic fermentation of pyruvate. Alcoholic fermentation - The process that converts pyruvate to carbon dioxide and ethanol that takes place in yeast under anaerobic conditions. Aldolase - The glycolytic enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reaction that converts fructose- 1,6-bisphosphate to glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (GAP) and dihydroxyacetone phoshate (DHAP). Glucose - A six-carbon molecule that is a digestive product of carbohydrates and plays a major role in the metabolism of living cells. Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase
