Definition of glycolytic in US English:



  • See glycolysis

    • ‘In addition, phosphatases specific for the phosphorylated forms of the glycolytic enzymes increase in activity under the influence of insulin.’
    • ‘The nucleotide feedback causes the glycolytic variables to exhibit small-amplitude oscillations.’
    • ‘The changes in the enzymatic activity of glycolytic enzymes when they form complexes were shown experimentally.’
    • ‘We report that there is substantial although not complete control of glycolytic oscillations in hexose transport, so that phosphofructokinase cannot be the oscillophore.’
    • ‘However, the activity of hexokinase in muscle is so high that any free glucose is immediately phosphorylated and enters the glycolytic pathway.’
