What is the function of lactate dehydrogenase in metabolism? regeneration of NAD+
What are the 3 regulated steps in TCA? Citrate synthase, Isocitrate degydrogenase, apha-ketagluterate
In which cellular compartment does the pyruvate dehydrogenase occur? Mitochondria
Which of the following is NOT a fate of pyruvate in humans? Ethanol (is NOT made naturally in humans)
Which combination of cofactors does the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex utilize? Lipoamide, coA, and FAD
What are the products of 1 glucose molecules through the Krebs cycle? 4 CO2 + 6 NADH2 + 2 FADH2 + 2 GTP

Which of the following processes is NOT cataplerotic with respect to TCA? Fatty Acid oxidation
What is the function of the malate-aspertate shuttle we have discussed so far? Transportation of reducing equivalents from the cytosol to the mitochondria for electron transport
What is the ultimate electron acceptor in Electron transport? Oxygen
Carbohydrate digestion begins with ________? Glycosidases in the mouth
What cleaves the alpha (1-4) bonds of complex carbohydrates? A-amylase

Assuming the glycerophosphate shuttle, what is the net ATP obtained from 1 molecule of glucose following Glycolysis and the Krebs cycle? 38 ATP
High concentration of which of the following would lead to inscreased activity in the TCA cycle? Ca2+
Which electron carrier is only capable of carrying a single electron in the electron transport chain? Cytochrome C
The activity of Cytochrome C oxidase (complex IV) is largely controlled by the availability of which molecule? Cytochrome c (fe2+)
