Full Answer

Glycolysis is the term for the metabolic pathway that puts glucose through lysis degradation, which turns it into pyruvate and releases free energy that is used by the body in the forms of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH). This process starts with hexokinase turning glucose into glucose 6-phosphate and ends with pyruvate kinase as the energy-containing product.
