Glycolysis is a 10-step process that generally prepares glucose molecules prior to entry in the Krebs cycle. This is divided into two phases: the preparatory phase and the payoff phase.
Which of the following is true of the glycolytic pathway?
A. The pathway begins with glucose.
B. The pathway ends with pyruvate.
C. The pathway begins with a 6-carbon compound and ends with two 3-carbon compounds.
D. The pathway has several reversible reactions that may be viewed as assimilative.
E. All of the above are correct.
F. Several of the above are correct, but not all are correct.
