Role of the Citric Acid Cycle in Metabolism 2 MCDB310 – Chapter 16: Citric Acid Cycle Catabolic role of CAC: Receives products from catabolic reactions (glycolysis, break-down of fatty acids and amino acids) as acetyl- CoA Oxidizes these products to CO 2 ( some ATP) Electrons are transferred to respiratory chain ( lots of ATP ) Anabolic role of CAC: Intermediates of CAC are important precursors in many biosynthetic pathways Metabolic hub ( amphibolic pathway )

The Citric Acid Cycle: Overview 3 MCDB310 – Chapter 16: Citric Acid Cycle Cyclic pathway localized in the mitochondrion of eukaryotic cells (bacteria: cytosol) Carbon enters cycle as C 2 (Ac-CoA) C 6 2 oxidative decarboxylations: Carbon leaves cycle as CO 2

Formation of Ac-CoA from Pyruvate 5 MCDB310 – Chapter 16: Citric Acid Cycle Pyruvate from glycolysis is transported into mitochondria Oxidative decarboxylation by multi-enzyme pyruvate dehydrogenase complex Advantage: substrate channeling, coordinated regulation G’ 0 = -33 kJ/mol
