Where does glycolysis take place in a cell?

Answer 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 »

Where does glycolysis occur in a eukaryotic cell?

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 »

Where does transcription take place in a cell?

In a eukaryotic cell (one with a nucleus), the transcription phase of RNA synthesis occurs inside of the cell's nucleus. The newly transcribed mRNA then exits the nucleus for translation in the cel... Read More »

Where does translation take place in a eukaryotic cell?

In a eukaryotic cell (one that has a clearly defined, membrane-bound nucleus), translation takes place in the cell's cytoplasm, the space outside of the cell's nucleus. The messenger RNA (mRNA) pas... Read More »

Where does the kreb cycle take place in the cell?

In eukaryotes, the kreb's cycle (citric acid cycle) occurs within the mitochondria. Prokaryotes, lacking mitochondria, carry in the kreb's cycle in the cytoplasm. The major function of the kreb's ... Read More »
