In glycolysis, a molecule of glucose is oxidized to two molecules of pyruvic acid. Glycolysis generates the energy carrier molecules ATP and NADH in addition to intermediates (3-C or 6-C) for biosynthetic pathways.

Glycolysis sequence: Glucose → Glucose-6-P Fructose-6-P → Fructose-1,6-diP Dihydroxyacetone-P → Glyceraldehyde-P 1,3-Biphosphoglycerate → 3-Phosphoglycerate 2-Phosphoglycerate (to) Phosphoenolpyruvate [PEP] Pyruvate • mnemonic:"Goodness Gracious, Father Franklin Did Go By Picking Pumpkins (to) Prepare Pies"

Glycolysis Enzymes : Hexokinase, Phosphohexo isomerase, Phosphofructokinase-1 (6-phosphofructo-1 kinase), Aldolase, Triose phosphate isomerase, Glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase, Phosphoglycerate kinase, Phosphoglycerate mutase, Enolase, Pyruvate kinase • mnemonic: “Hungry Peter Pan And The Growling Pink Panther Eat Pies.”
