    what are the main features of glycolysis
    Glycolysis takes place in the cytoplasm of the cell
    Firstly,glucose forms glucose phosphate(6C) initially (phosphate comes from the hydrolysis of an ATP molecule)
    Then along with another hydrolysis of ATP, the glucose phosphate becomes hexose bisphosphate(6C)
    This is broken down into 2xTriose Phosphate (3C)
    The triose phosphate loses a hydrogen atom each that in total reduces two NAD, 4ADP combines with 4 Pi to produce 4 ATP (net gain of two)
    And the final product is 2xPyruvate
    So overall: 2xPyruvate that enters Link reaction,2x reduced NAD, and a net gain of 2 ATP,
