In Chapter Six, cellular respiration in most eukaryotic cells living in an oxygen- rich environment was summarized as ... Remember that in respiration glucose is broken down into carbon dioxide, water, and energy in small enzymatically controlled steps. ... Glycolysis involves the breakdown of glucose, a 6-carbon sugar, into two molecules of pyruvic acid, a 3-carbon sugar. ... In the summary diagram of these nine steps, shown below, especially note: (1) 130 Chapter Seven Glycolysis.
