Glycolysis Introduction Glycolysis Figure %: The Glycolytic Pathway. Now that we have a general understanding of the broad topics of metabolism and respiration, we will turn our discussion to more specific metabolic pathways that lead to the derivation of ATP. In this SparkNote we will look at glycolysis, the metabolism of glucose, a digestive product of carbohydrates found in many food products that we ingest. Taking place in the cell cytoplasm, glycolysis actually comprises a series of nine steps involving a number of intermediate structures and specific enzymes that help catalyze each reaction. In this section, we will go through each of these reactions, learning the roles of the associated intermediates and enzymes. ( Note : specific knowledge of the nine steps of glycolysis is not necessary for the AP Biology test. In regard to that test, this summary presents all information necessary about glycolysis and the first two sections of this SparkNote can be skipped. The third section on fermentation, however, will be covered on the AP test).
