Lysis ReactionsEdit

  • Glycolysis - the breaking down of a sugar into pyruvate
  • Autolysis - the breaking down of a cell when there is no other way to sustain itself
  • Photolysis - the splitting of water molecules by using light energy to break the bonds
  • Hydrolysis - the splitting of water molecules to convert a different molecule into something else
