Without ATP energy, no cell would be able to function. Humans, animals, plants, and much more would die without energy to run cells, and therefore our highly structured world would quickly cease to exist.

Glycolysis is the beginning steps for both aerobic and anaerobic pathways. Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. Glycolysis is where glucose is broken down into two pyruvate molecules.
