The answer you're looking for is either catabolism, cellular respiration, or glycolysis. Glycolysis is the first step in cellular respiration and it is the exact step when glu…cose is broken down. The equation (from Wikipedia) for glycolysis: glucose + 2 NAD + + 2 ADP + 2 P i â 2 pyruvate + 2 NADH + 2 H + + 2 ATP + 2 H 2 O Following glycolysis is usually some form of anaerobic(fermentation) or aerobic respiration(Krebs Cycle + electron transport chain). Catabolism is just a general term for the breakdown of molecules.
