Glycolysis

This Demonstration outlines a simplified description of glycolysis, a sequence of reactions in which glucose is transformed into pyruvate. The process is split under two tabs, showing where high-energy compounds are invested in the process and where they are created. At step 7, the Demonstration automatically switches to the energy payoff tab, detailing what happens to the G3P. When you move the slider while in the legend tab, the Demonstration will switch to the new step and show the corresponding tab.
