What happens after glycolysis


Recommended Posts

After the pyruvate molecules travel into the mitochondrion what happens them? I read that they are oxidized into CO2. What happens the other 2 carbon atoms then? I also read that pyruvate is converted into acetate. Would I be right in assuming that what happens is the pyruvate is split into CO2, a 2 carbon acetate and then the loose hydrogen gets picked up by NAD+?
