These reduced coenzymes are themselves oxidized. The acetyl groups are fed into the citric acid cycle. three enzymes located in the mitochondria of eukaryotic cells and in the cytosol of prokaryotes. fatty acids. Thiamine-deficient animals are unable to oxidize pyruvate normally (Brain)  Beriberi is characterized by loss neural function 2 .    Pyruvate. four derived from vitamins. Five cofactors. The PDH complex is a classic. the energy released is conserved in the reduced electron carriers NADH and FADH2. participate in the reaction mechanism. and some amino acids are oxidized to yield twocarbon fragments in the form of the acetyl group of acetylcoenzyme A (acetyl-CoA). which enzymatically oxidizes them to CO2 . a cluster of enzymes.

coenzyme A (CoA sometimes denoted CoA-SH) and lipoate 4 different vitamins required in human nutrition are vital components of this system : thiamine (in TPP). 5 coenzyme (prosthetic groups) : thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP). dihydrolipoyl transacetylase (E2). niacin (in NAD). flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). riboflavin (in FAD).3/1/2013 Coenzyme A (Co-A) Piruvat dehidrogenase   Complex enzyme : pyruvate dehydrogenase (E1). and pantothenate (in CoA) 3 . and dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase (E3).

The enzyme complex is now ready for another catalytic cycle. the entire set of reactions of the citric acid cycle takes place in mitochondria (Eugene Kennedy & Albert Lehninger. restoring the oxidized form of the lipoyllysyl group of E2  the reduced FADH2 of E3 transfers a hydride ion to NAD. forming NADH.  Reactions of the Citric Acid Cycle     Citric acid cycle. 1948) In each turn of the cycle.3/1/2013 Dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase (E3) promotes transfer of two hydrogen atoms from the reduced lipoyl groups of E2 to the FAD prosthetic group of E3. one acetyl group (two carbons) enters as acetyl-CoA and two molecules of CO2 The reaction is a circular not a linear 5 . also called the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle or the Krebs cycle (after its discoverer 1937) In eukaryotes.

catalyzed by citrate synthase It rapidly undergoes hydrolysis to free citrate and CoA (liberated in this reaction is recycled to participate in the oxidative decarboxylation of another molecule of pyruvate by the PDH complex) 6 .3/1/2013 The Citric Acid Cycle Has Eight Steps 1 Formation of Citrate The condensation of acetyl-CoA (methyl carbon) with oxaloacetate (carbonyl groups) to form citrate.
