10

Dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase is important in the ___________. It it requires __________ as a prosthetic group.

regeneration of oxidized lipoamide; FAD

11

Catalytic co-factors are prosthetic groups for formation of acetyl-CoA by pyruvate dehydrogenase. What are the catalytic cofactors?

TPP; lipoic acid; FAD

12

Pyruvate dehydrogenase requires cofactors that function as substrate. What are they?

CoA and NAD

13

What is a "stoichiometric cofactor?

A cofactor that acts as a substrate

14

Production of acetyl-CoA occurs where?
A. Intermembrane space
B. Mitochondrial matrix
C. On the outer mitochondrial membrane
D. On the inner mitochondrial membrane

B. Mitochondrial matrix

15

Production of Acetyl-CoA from pyruvate occurs in three steps. What are they?

2) Oxidation of acetyl group
3) Transfer of acetyl group to CoA

16
