Agree, option D. All above is the correct answer.

Allosteric means not in the active site.

Give more details about it.

What is mean by stimulant and allosteric?

I agree ADP helps in stimulation of glycolysis as it results from phosphorylating the glucose compound.

Phospho kinase 1 enzyme has about 4 active sites i.e active site for ATP, Citrate, AMP & Fructose 2-6 Bisphosphate site, Increase in Fructose 2-6 Bisphosphate (a very powerful stimulant of Phospho Kinase 1).

ATP & Citrate, signals Phospho Kinase 1 to Phosphorylate more Fructose 6 phosphate into Fructose 1-6 bisphosphate. In my opinion this is the Enzymatic Allosteric Regulation.

I think the keyword is "stimulate" usually ADP means low ATP concern so it will cause more ATP to produced. Hence stimulate Glycolysis for ATP production.

All of the above because the glycolysis depends on these founding blocks to operate.

Where is glycolysis stimulated by ADP? Phosphofructokinase is stimulated by AMP but not ADP because the concentration of ADP is not as variable as AMP.
