Unformatted text preview: when it is a product of a TCA cycle reaction.) 2 (5 pts). Shown below is a representation of the structure of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), as well as an intermediate in the reaction catalyzed by the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (hydroxyethyl-TPP). Show the reaction mechanism used by the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex to generate hydroxyethyl-TPP from pyruvate and TPP. TPP hydroxyethyl-TPP 3 (2 pts). Name this structure....
