Write the steps of glycolytic pathway if the respiratory substrate is sucrose.

Please provide the answer to the above given question urgently.

Dear student,
Sucrose is converted into glucose and fructose by the enzyme, invertase, and these two monosaccharides readily enter the glycolytic pathway.
Glucose and fructose are phosphorylated to give rise to glucose-6- phosphate by the activity of the enzyme hexokinase.
This phosphorylated form of glucose then isomerises to produce fructose-6- phosphate.
 Subsequent steps of metabolism of glucose and fructose are same.
