The Krebs Cycle Occurs in the matrix of the mitochondrion Aerobic phase (requires oxygen) 2-carbon acetyl CoA joins with a 4- carbon compound to form a 6- carbon compound called Citric acid

Citric acid (6C) is gradually converted back to the 4-carbon compound - ready to start the cycle once more • The carbons removed are released as CO 2 -enzymes controlling this process called decarboxylases The hydrogens, which are removed, join with NAD to form NADH2 -enzymes controlling the release of hydrogen are called dehydrogenases

The Cytochrome System 6 points along pathway where hydrogen is released and temporarily bound to NAD • Reduced coenzyme NADH 2 transfers hydrogen to a chain of hydrogen carriers called cytochrome system These systems are attached to the cristate
