Problem: Choose all the true statements about the citric acid cycle. A. In the citric acid cycle, pyruvate is degraded to produce acetyl CoA. B. The citric acid cycle occurs in the mitochondria of the cell. C. The citric acid cycle is an aerobic process. D. NADH, GTP, FADH2, and coenzyme A molecule are produced by the citric acid cycle. E. Each turn of the citric acid cycle requires two molecules of acetyl-CoA

FREE Expert Solution

A. In the citric acid cycle, pyruvate is degraded to produce acetyl CoA.FALSE

Oxidation of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA is not part of the citric acid cycle.


B. The citric acid cycle occurs in the mitochondria of the cell. → TRUE

Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm while the citric acid cycle occurs in the mitochondria.
