Glycolysis is the anaerobic breakdown of the glucose molecule in the cytoplasm of the cell. In glycolysis, one molecule of glucose C_6 H_12OH  forms two molecules of pyruvic acid CH3​COCOOH. The pyruvic acid which is formed will enter the Krebs cycle in the mitochondria for the production of ATP molecules.
