Distinguish between Glycolysis and TCA cycle.


The process of glycolysis takes place in the cytoplasm. A molecule of glucose is oxidized step by step in this process and two molecules of each i.e. Pyruvic acid, ATP, NADH2 and water is formed. Molecules of pyruvic acid formed in this process are converted into molecules of Acetyl-Coenzyme-A. Two molecules of NADH2 and two molecules of CO2 are released during this process. Meanwhile, in TCA, both molecules of acetyl-CoA enter the mitochondria. A Cyclic chain of reactions known as a tricarboxylic acid cycle is operated on it in the mitochondria. Acetyl part of acetyl-CoA is completely oxidized during this cyclical process and molecules CO2, H2O, NADH2, FADH2 are derived.
