Differentiate, distinguish, compare and explain what is the main differences between Glycolysis and Krebs cycle.
Comparison and Differences between Glycolysis and Krebs cycle
- Glycolysis is a linear pathway. Krebs cycle is a cyclic pathway.
- Glycolysis occurs in the cell cytoplasm. Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondria! matrix.
- Glycolysis occurs in both aerobic and anaerobic respiration. Krebs cycle occurs in aerobic respiration.
- Glycolysis generates 2 NADH2 and 2 ATP molecules on the breakdown of one glucose molecule. Krebs cycle produces 6 NADH2, 2FADH2, and 2 ATP molecules on the breakdown of two acetyl-CoA molecules.
