Glycolysis - how do carbohydrates enter the glycolytic sequence?

  1. Apr 28, 2008 #1
    somebody help me,
    how do these carbohydrates:maltose, lactose, starch, glycogen, sucrose, fructose, mannose and galactose ultimately enter the glycolytic sequence.

    Well the basis of all those carbohydrates is glucose. For example maltose is broken down to glucose by hydrolysis, lactase breaks lactose into glucose and galactose.
    I don't know if that answers your question.
