    As we examine Glycolysis, remember these are biological reactions. They are catalyzed by enzymes. Kinases, dehydrogenases and isomerases are important enzymes in Glycolysis. Kinases transfer a phosphate functional group to or from ATP (a very important nucleotide triphosphate), and you are already familiar with what dehydrogenases and isomerases do. A variety of hexoses (Energy-containing sugars), including fructose and galactose can be funneled into glycolysis and broken down for energy. The dehydrogenases: glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase, lactate dehydrogenase and alcohol dehydrogenase all use NAD (a vitamin) to oxidize the substrate and obtain NADH, an important Energy-carrying molecule.
