First Half of Glycolysis (Energy-Requiring Steps)

The first half of glycolysis uses two ATP molecules in the phosphorylation of glucose, which is then split into two three-carbon molecules.Source: OpenStax Biology 2e OpenStax Biology 2e Step 1. The first step in glycolysis is catalyzed by hexokinase, an enzyme with broad specificity that catalyzes the phosphorylation of six-carbon sugars. Hexokinase phosphorylates glucose using … Continue reading First Half of Glycolysis (Energy-Requiring Steps)
