How to memorize the Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle Many college student go crazy when they are first presented with the task of memorizing the Krebs/ Citric Acid cycle. So many steps and enzymes and carbon dioxides flowing around. Guess what. There is a very easy way to remember it, AND retain it for years to come without ever looking back in the book. ….and we have 2 molecules of acetyle CoA to start with. If you dont understand that please see the post about glycolysis. I will go over how i memorized the names of all the molecules in the Krebs cycle, then the enzymes between each step, and then finally…if you are up to it how to draw each molecule. The easiest way to get this dreadful cycle in your head is by using mnemonics. This will take practice and its best that you don’t try to study this for the 1st time the day before the test. To remember the molecules of the citric acid (Krebs) cycle i use: Can———-Citrate Adam———-*cis-Aconitate Intrigue———-Isocitrate A———-alpha-ketoglutarate
