Glycolysis is the primary stage of cellular respiration. This metabolic pathway occurs when the glucose or sugar molecules break to release energy for cellular metabolism. The overall chemical reaction of glycolysis takes place within the cytoplasm of the cell.
During the process of glycolysis, thousands of ATP molecules are produced in the living cells and occurs in the absence of oxygen.
