What happens to the pyruvate produced in glycolysis?
Pyruvate enters the mytochondrion and gets converted to AcetylCoA
How many AcetylCoAs are produced per molecule glucose?
Two acetylCoAs from 2 pyruvates resulting from glycolysis
What is the first step in pyruvate oxidation?
The carboxyl group is removed as CO2
What is the second step in pyruvate oxidation?
NAD+ is reduced to NADH
What is the third step in pyruvate oxidation?
an acetyl group is transfer for Coenzyme A making AcetylCoA
What are the similarities between FAD, NAD+ and CoA?
They are all ATP derived
What is the high energy bond in AcetylCoA?
The thioester -CO-S-
What does coenzymeA do for the Krebs cycle?
It is a carrier of acyl-groups.
AcetylCoA enters the Krebs cycle by...
attaching the 2C-atoms in the acyl-group to oxaloactetae to build citrate (6C-compound)
