What are the important elements of this case?

What is the diagnosis?

What is the role of the TCA Cycle?

Mitochondria

Innermembrane Features

Outtermembrane Features

What type of Reaction Occurs in the Mitochondria?

 

 

Pyruvate carboxylase is within the Mitochondria. 

Invagination increases surface area

Innermembrane transversing needs specific transporters. 

Oxidative phosphorylation needs oxygen to make ATP.

Reaction Type?

Products?

Electron Carriers? How Many?

SIMPLE THERMODYNAMICS

What determines if a reaction is favorable?

 

Gibbs Free Energy Definitions and Conditions

 

Standard Gibbs Free Energy

7

THERMODYNAMICS CONT.

 

Gibbs Free Energy Eqn for a Reaction.

Condition for the Reaction to Proceed.

Approaching Coupled Reactions. 

We are never under standard conditions so this reaction needs to include the [RT ln (C)(D)/(A)(B)]

Coupled reactions Standard Free Energy Changes can be added together. 

Being favored thermodynamically doesn’t mean it will occur spontaneously. 

Thermodynamically just means in the right conditions it will be favored. 

8

THERMODYNAMICS

 

Determine the thermodynamics of the First Step of Glycolysis

9

THERMODYNAMICS

 

How can reactions with positive Gibbs Free Energy still proceed?

Use Malate conversion to Oxaloacetate as an Example.

 

 

If the second expression, which is correcting non-standard conditions, is more negative than 29.7 kJ/mole than the reaction would be overall negative gibbs free energy and the reaction would continue. That means the conc. of the reactants should be small and the products should be larger. But in this case OAA conc. is small not large so we don’t have an over all negative.

2 Methods for Pyruvate to enter Mitochondria

 

 

ANtiport is also driven by the proton gradient. Citrate has 3 neg. charges and pyruvate only has one so there is a difference in negative charges. 

11

 

 

 

Pyruvate Dehydrogenase

Once pyruvate is converted to Acetyl CoA you’ve lost the ability to go to gluconeogenesis. 

Pyruvate Fates — Alanine, Lactate, Acetyl CoA, and one more…? Go back to glucose via gluconeogenesis.

E3 Subunit will be used by all enzymes that catalyze oxidative decarboxylation reactions.

E3 has an electron acceptor bound to it (FAD).  

12

 

 

 

E1 Subunit

 

 

Catalytic Subunit

Pyruvate Decarboxylase

Binds Thiamin Pyrophosphate

 

13

 

 

 

E2 Subunit

 

 

Catalytic Subunit

Transacetylase

Utilizes Lipoic Acid

14

 

 

 

E3 Subunit

 

 

Catalytic Subunit

Dihydrolipoyl Dehydrogenase

Shared with other enzymes

also has bound FAD

15

 

 

 

Cofactors required by PDH (Pyruvate Dehydrogenase)

16

 

 

 

Thiamin Pyrophosphate

 

 

 

Derived from Thiamin, Vitamin B1

17

 

 

 

What is FAD?

 

 

Ribotal is the reduced form of Ribose

Vitamin B2 is riboflavin which is essential for making FAD

18

 

 

 

How does FAD accept Electrons?

 

 

FAD can exist in a radical form. 

Better Oxidizing Agent than NAD but not as good as a reducing agent. 

19

 

 

 

Coenzyme A

20

 

 

 

Lipoic Acid

21

 

 

 

Importance of Pyruvate Dehydrogenase

Thiamine is in the husk of rice, but not the polished or white rice.

Now days the only patients with BeriBeri are chronic alcoholic because alcohol interferes with absorption. 

Any enzymes that use pyruvate as a substrate and becomes defective ends up with a build up of pyruvate which will end up in lactate which causes lactic acidosis. 

22

 

 

 

Thiamin Deficiency 

23

 

 

 

Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex Deficiency 

24

What is Beriberi 

 

 

Dry Beriberi — Nervous System effects include Loss of feeling/Speech/Nystagmus. 

People don’t usually get both. 

Dry BeriBeri develops and can get worse which leads with Wernicke Encephalopathy then -Korsakoff Syndrome.

How do the TCA cycle enzymes work?

32

 

 

 

Aconitase and Citrate

 

 

Citrate is a symmetrical Molecule. But Aconite treats it as a asymmetrical molecule. so it always uses the same bond and adds OH to the same side every time.

33

 

 

 

Isocitrate Dehydrogenase

 

 

 

This reaction doesn’t require any other co-factor than NAD which is very different from the other decarboxylation reactions of TCA. 

34

 

 

 

Alpha-KG Dehydrogenase 

35

 

 

 

Succinyl CoA Synthetase

36

 

 

 

Once we've formed Succinate, what is our overall reaction

 

 

 

Half way point. 

The rest of the cycle captures the remaining 4 electrons (of the 8 total)

37

 

 

 

TCA supplies intermediates for 

 

 

 

Heme Synthesis and Amino Acid Synthesis 

38

43

 

 

 

Can an enzyme change the favorability of a reaction?

 

 

 

Enzymes don’t change the favorability of a reaction, it only reduces the amount of energy needed to reduce the transition state. 

44

 

 

 

Positive Delta G

 

 

 

Positive Delta G is unfavorable and reverse reaction is favorable. 

45

PDH Kinase Control/Regulation

The same inhibitors of PDH are activators of PDH Kinase which inhibit PDH even further. 

Large amounts of Pyruvate will inactivate PDH Kinase which will allow the PDH to be more active and act on pyruvate. 

Insulin activates the Phosphatase so we can make our fatty acids. 

Ca will activate the phosphatase when muscles contract ca is released
