What happens to glucose in the cytoplasm of the cell before it completely gets oxidized to CO2 and water?
Dear student, glycolysis of glucose occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell before it is completely gets oxidized to CO2 and water. Glycolysis is the process which occurs in cytoplasm of all living organisms. In glycolysis one molecule of sugar is broken down into two molecule of pyruvate producing net two molecules of ATP, two molecules of NADPH and two molecules of water. In anaerobic organisms glycolysis is known as fermentation. Thanks and regards
