Citric Acid Cycle

First, pyruvate (from glycolysis) is converted to Acetyl-CoA by a dehydrogenase

Then,

"CIKSS FMO"


Oxaloacetate + Acetyl-CoA -> Citrate + CoA by citrate kinase

Citrate <-> Isocitrate by aconitase

Isocitrate -> alpha-Ketoglutarate by dehydrogenase, NADH produced!

alpha-ketoglutarate + CoA <-> Succinyl-CoA by dehydrogenase, NADH produced!

Succinyl-CoA <-> Succinate by a synthetase, GTP produced!

Succinate <-> Fumarate by dehydrogenase, FADH produced!

Fumarate <-> Malate by fumarase

Malate <-> Oxaloacetate by dehydrogenase, NADH produced!
