1.What is Glycolysis?
2. What is Trypsin?

(1) Glycolysis is a cytoplasmic metabolic pathway that breaks down glucose (C6H12O6) into three carbon-compound pyruvic acids (CH3COCOOH) releasing energy.
Glycolysis is utilized by every cell of the body for energy formation. The free energy released during the process is stored in the formation of the high-energy molecules, Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP), and reduced Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NADH).
Glycolysis is a process that involves a sequence of ten reactions catalyzed by enzymes.

(2) Trypsin is an enzyme present in pancreatic juice.
Trypsin has a key role in the small intestine. In the small intestine, the enzyme breaks down into proteins and continues the process of digestion that began in the stomach.
