Problem: At the end of the citric acid cycle, most of the energy remaining from the original glucose is stored in A) FADH2B) pyruvic acid C) ATP D) NADH

FREE Expert Solution

Citric Acid Cycle: cyclic oxidation of citrate into oxaloacetate

Overall reaction: For every 1 acetyl-CoA: 

3 NAD+ + 1 FAD +  1 GDP + Pi → 1 G(A)TP + 3 NADH + 1 FADH2 + 2 CO2


NADH = most abundant high energy product
