Solution: The ΔGº values for the two reaction shows below are given:Oxaloacetate + actyl CoA + H2O → citrate + CoASH (ΔGº=-32.2 kJ/mol; enzyme: citrate synthase)Oxaloacetate + acetate → citrate (ΔGº = -1.9 kJ/mol; enzyme: citratesynthase)Write the advanced hydrolysis reaction for acetyl CoA.

Problem

The ΔGº values for the two reaction shows below are given:

Oxaloacetate + actyl CoA + H2O → citrate + CoASH (ΔGº=-32.2 kJ/mol; enzyme: citrate synthase)

Oxaloacetate + acetate → citrate (ΔGº = -1.9 kJ/mol; enzyme: citratesynthase)

Write the advanced hydrolysis reaction for acetyl CoA.

Solution

The hydrolysis of acetyl CoA yields citrate and CoASH from Oxaloacetate. The product formation of the reaction would require the need for water as this is a hydrolysis reaction.
