After glycolysis, the two pyruvates produced from one molecule of glucose are converted into acetyl CoA. This process occurs in the mitochondrion of the cell. More »

Diffusion is a process that occurs during respiration, in which gasses pass between the walls of the alveoli and the capillaries. According to the National Institutes of Health, oxygen moves from the lungs into the blood... More »

The equation for lactic acid fermentation after glycolysis is, pyruvic acid + NADH -- lactic acid + NAD+. In the absence of oxygen, NADH that is synthesized in the glycolysis reacts with the pyruvic acid to form lactic a... More »

Glycolysis is the breakdown of a molecule of glucose into two molecules of pyruvate, while the Krebs cycle is the conversion of the resulting pyruvate molecules into a compound known as acetyl CoA. Both of these steps oc... More »
