# What happens during Glycolysis? [closed]

Can I get brief explanation of the reactions that occur under Glycolysis? What do the curved lines represent?

Glycolysis is a process of which converts Glucose(Described as C$$_{6}$$ in your diagram), to two Pyruvate (2C$$_{3}$$). Then in downstream of glycolysis, Pyruvates are then converted to AcetylCoA to be used for many things in body. Glycolysis is part of a metabolic pathway, and in total it uses 1 Glucose, 2 ATP, 2 NAD+ to produce 2 Pyruvate, 4 ATP and 2 NADH. So those curve lines represents the Total input and output of energy. Each step is facilitated by different enzymes, so you could search for enzymes in each step for more information about each reaction. Wikipedia has table of each reactions.
This is a schematic diagram of glycolysis where the metabolites are shown on the left side and the cofactors on the right. Intead of writing a reaction $$\ce{A + B -> C + D}$$, you can write it as $$\ce{A -> D}$$ with a curved arrow indicating that B is also a reactant and C is also a product.
