      I am an A2 student doing an presentation on ATP that covers topics outside of our syllabus. I was looking at different pathways that make up cellular respiration. I notice that Glycolysis requires 2 molecules of ATP so for a human to make his/her own molecules of ATP i presume these are inherited from the mother. To me this sounds like which came first the chicken or the egg. Can anyone please help?

      Yeah, all the stuff is inherited from mother (actually from father too, but it’s too few, so it’s too much diluted;) and of course also all of molecules, which are in the egg
      (but glycolysis takes place in cytosol, not mitochondria;)
