Scope note: A metabolic process that converts GLUCOSE into two molecules of PYRUVIC ACID through a series of enzymatic reactions. Energy generated by this process is conserved in two molecules of ATP. Glycolysis is the universal catabolic pathway for glucose, free glucose, or glucose derived from complex CARBOHYDRATES, such as GLYCOGEN and STARCH.

Embden-Meyerhof Pathway - Narrower
Concept UI M0473538
Scope note An old term for glycolysis. Often it is used to describe anaerobic glucose catabolism that includes the further conversion of PYRUVIC ACID to LACTIC ACID or ETHANOL.
