    You've got to give us a little more than this. If you want a full review of glycolysis, your best resource is a book or the web. If you are having trouble with any specific aspects of it, we are more than willing to help explain them, if you work along with us.

    Oh I can't resist: Two rocket engines called Glycolysis and Fat Metabolism both funnel into a combustion chamber called the Kreb Cycle. And at the very top of each a key controls their thrust. That key, called Adrenalin caused a marvelous cascading-enzyme effect in which a very small turn of the key gets translated into a very large thrust. :smile: Now, your task, if you so choose to accept it, is to kindly translate this into Chemistry.

    Ok, fair deal, I will do this if you are willing to read me War & Peace as a bedtime story, and explain the intricacies of Quantum Mechanics over lunch.
