This is because some of the intermediate molecules are starting points for biosynthetic pathways. 3 LJ Overview of citric acid cycle, conI. • Receives input from glycolysis, as well as amino acids and fatty acids derived from hydrolysis of proteins and fats. • These can enter the cycle as acetyl-coA or as cycle intermediates. • First step: acetyl-coA combines with oxaloacetate, making a 6-carbon compound: citric acid. 4 LJ Location of the citric acid cycle in the mitochondria • The mitochondria have two membranes, the inner and outer. • Within the inner membrane is the mitochondrial matrix. • It is in the matrix that the citric acid cycle occurs, with one exception:- The enzyme that catalyzes the FAD-linked...
