gly·col·y·sis

 (glī-kŏl′ə-sĭs)
n.
A metabolic process that occurs in nearly all living cells in which glucose is converted in a series of steps to pyruvic acid and during which energy is released in the form of ATP.

glycolysis

(ɡlaɪˈkɒlɪsɪs)
n
(Biochemistry) biochem the breakdown of glucose by enzymes into pyruvic and lactic acids with the liberation of energy

gly•col•y•sis

(glaɪˈkɒl ə sɪs)

n.
the catabolism of carbohydrates, as glucose and glycogen, by enzymes, with the release of energy and the production of lactic or pyruvic acid.
