Best Answer

• Glycolysis is the process in which glucose is broken down

to produce energy.

• It produces two molecules of pyruvate, ATP, NADH and

water.

• The process takes place in the cytosol of the cell

cytoplasm, in the presence or absence of oxygen.

• Glycolysis is the primary step of cellular respiration. In

the absence of oxygen, the cells take small amounts of

ATP through the process of fermentation.

• This metabolic pathway was discovered by three

German biochemists- Gustav Embden, Otto Meyerhof,

and Jakub Karol Parnas in the early 19th century and is

known as the EMP pathway (Embden–Meyerhof–

Parnas).
