Solution: One function of Citric Acid cycle is:A. the production of ADP.B. the reduction of NAD+ to NADH.C. The oxidation of FADH2 to FAD.D. The conversion of glucose to lactic acid.E. The production of sugar.

Problem

One function of Citric Acid cycle is:

A. the production of ADP.

B. the reduction of NAD+ to NADH.

C. The oxidation of FADH2 to FAD.

D. The conversion of glucose to lactic acid.

E. The production of sugar.

Solution

The citric acid cycle is the part of glucose metabolism where pyruvate, in preparation for entering the cycle, is converted to Acetyl CoA with the subsequent release of CO2 and NADH as byproduct. The metabolic end products for this cycle are more electron carriers which are to be used in the electron transport chain.
