Unformatted text preview: The Citric Acid Cycle Dihydrolipoyl transacetylase - One of three enzymes that make up the pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex. Responsible for catalyzing the addition of a CoA molecule to the acetyl-lipoamide structure. Flavin adenine dinucleotide - A coenzyme that participates in oxidation and reduction reactions by accepting and donating hydrogen atoms. Involved particularly in oxidations and reductions of carbon-carbon double and triple bonds. Fumarase - The citric acid cycle enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reaction that converts fumarate to L-malate with the release of water. Glycolysis - A metabolic pathway occurring in the cell cytosol. Glycolysis comprises a series of reactions that taken in their entirety convert glucose to pyruvate and synthesizes ATP. Guanosine triphosphate - A molecule that is similar in both form and function to ATP. Isocitrate dehydrogenase - The citric acid cycle enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reaction that converts isocitrate into alpha-ketoglutarate in a two-step mechanism that leads to...
