Discussion :: Glycolysis - Section 1 (Q.No.12)


Which of the following is not true of glycolysis?

[A]. ADP is phosphorylated to ATP via substrate level phosphorylation
[B]. The pathway does not require oxygen
[C]. The pathway oxidizes two moles of NADH to NAD+ for each mole of glucose that enters
[D]. The pathway requires two moles of ATP to get started catabo-lizing each mole of glucose

NAD is an oxidizing agent.

It should be NAD + TO NADH.

It is correct as NADH to NAD+ because when you get rid of H, you are oxidizing it. The more H, the more reduced.

Joachim said: (May 19, 2016)  
It involves reduction of NAD+ to NADH.

Henry said: (Oct 26, 2018)  
Even B is correct since glycolysis does not require oxygen to take place.

Yes @Henry.

Glucolysis can still occur without Oxygen.
