Where does glycolysis occur in a eukaryotic cell?

Answer Glycolysis is the first stage in cellular metabolism breaking glucose down into pyruvate. In both eukaryotes and prokaryotes, this process occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. Pyruvate may be furth... Read More »

Top Q&A For: Where does glycolysis occur in a eukaryotic cell

Does glycolysis occur in both photosynthesis&respiration?

Glycolysis occurs as a universal initial step in cellular respiration but not in photosynthesis. Glycolysis breaks glucose down into pyruvate, yielding a small amount of energy in the process. Phot... Read More »

Does cellular respiration occur in all eukaryotic cells?

Cellular respiration occurs in all living things, including eukaryotes (organisms that have cells with a clearly defined, membrane-bound nucleus) and prokaryotes (organisms that lack a nucleus). Ce... Read More »

Where does glycolysis take place in a cell?

Glycolysis is the process by which glucose is broken down into pyruvate, yielding a net gain of two molecules of ATP. This process is a precursor for both fermentation and aerobic respiration. It t... Read More »

Eukaryotic Cell Characteristics?

Only two types of cells exist in the world--prokaryotic and eukaryotic. Taxonomists classify bacteria and archaea (organisms similar to bacteria) as prokaryotic. Eukaryotic cells make up protists, ... Read More »
