Citric Acid Cycle
An enzyme of the oxidoreductase class that catalyzes the conversion of isocitrate and NAD+ to yield 2-ketoglutarate, carbon dioxide, and NADH. It occurs in cell mitochondria. The enzyme requires Mg2+, Mn2+; it is activated by ADP, citrate, and Ca2+, and inhibited by NADH, NADPH, and ATP. The reaction is the key rate-limiting step of the citric acid (tricarboxylic) cycle. (From Dorland, 27th ed) (The NADP+ enzyme is EC 220.127.116.11.) EC 18.104.22.168.
Acetyl Coenzyme A
A water-soluble, colorless crystal with an acid taste that is used as a chemical intermediate, in medicine, the manufacture of lacquers, and to make perfume esters. It is also used in foods as a sequestrant, buffer, and a neutralizing agent. (Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary, 12th ed, p1099; McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed, p1851)
Enzymes that catalyze the first step leading to the oxidation of succinic acid by the reversible formation of succinyl-CoA from succinate and CoA with the concomitant cleavage of ATP to ADP (EC 22.214.171.124) or GTP to GDP (EC 126.96.36.199) and orthophosphate. Itaconate can act instead of succinate and ITP instead of GTP.EC 6.2.1.-.
Derivatives of acetic acid with one or more fluorines attached. They are almost odorless, difficult to detect chemically, and very stable. The acid itself, as well as the derivatives that are broken down in the body to the acid, are highly toxic substances, behaving as convulsant poisons with a delayed action. (From Miall's Dictionary of Chemistry, 5th ed)
The complex series of phenomena, occurring between the end of one CELL DIVISION and the end of the next, by which cellular material is duplicated and then divided between two daughter cells. The cell cycle includes INTERPHASE, which includes G0 PHASE; G1 PHASE; S PHASE; and G2 PHASE, and CELL DIVISION PHASE.
A metabolic process that converts GLUCOSE into two molecules of PYRUVIC ACID through a series of enzymatic reactions. Energy generated by this process is conserved in two molecules of ATP. Glycolysis is the universal catabolic pathway for glucose, free glucose, or glucose derived from complex CARBOHYDRATES, such as GLYCOGEN and STARCH.
Dicarboxylic Acid Transporters
Semiautonomous, self-reproducing organelles that occur in the cytoplasm of all cells of most, but not all, eukaryotes. Each mitochondrion is surrounded by a double limiting membrane. The inner membrane is highly invaginated, and its projections are called cristae. Mitochondria are the sites of the reactions of oxidative phosphorylation, which result in the formation of ATP. They contain distinctive RIBOSOMES, transfer RNAs (RNA, TRANSFER); AMINO ACYL T RNA SYNTHETASES; and elongation and termination factors. Mitochondria depend upon genes within the nucleus of the cells in which they reside for many essential messenger RNAs (RNA, MESSENGER). Mitochondria are believed to have arisen from aerobic bacteria that established a symbiotic relationship with primitive protoeukaryotes. (King & Stansfield, A Dictionary of Genetics, 4th ed)
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
A chemical reaction in which an electron is transferred from one molecule to another. The electron-donating molecule is the reducing agent or reductant; the electron-accepting molecule is the oxidizing agent or oxidant. Reducing and oxidizing agents function as conjugate reductant-oxidant pairs or redox pairs (Lehninger, Principles of Biochemistry, 1982, p471).
A coenzyme composed of ribosylnicotinamide 5'-diphosphate coupled to adenosine 5'-phosphate by pyrophosphate linkage. It is found widely in nature and is involved in numerous enzymatic reactions in which it serves as an electron carrier by being alternately oxidized (NAD+) and reduced (NADH). (Dorland, 27th ed)
The period from onset of one menstrual bleeding (MENSTRUATION) to the next in an ovulating woman or female primate. The menstrual cycle is regulated by endocrine interactions of the HYPOTHALAMUS; the PITUITARY GLAND; the ovaries; and the genital tract. The menstrual cycle is divided by OVULATION into two phases. Based on the endocrine status of the OVARY, there is a FOLLICULAR PHASE and a LUTEAL PHASE. Based on the response in the ENDOMETRIUM, the menstrual cycle is divided into a proliferative and a secretory phase.
Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex
A multienzyme complex responsible for the formation of ACETYL COENZYME A from pyruvate. The enzyme components are PYRUVATE DEHYDROGENASE (LIPOAMIDE); dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase; and LIPOAMIDE DEHYDROGENASE. Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex is subject to three types of control: inhibited by acetyl-CoA and NADH; influenced by the energy state of the cell; and inhibited when a specific serine residue in the pyruvate decarboxylase is phosphorylated by ATP. PYRUVATE DEHYDROGENASE (LIPOAMIDE)-PHOSPHATASE catalyzes reactivation of the complex. (From Concise Encyclopedia Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 3rd ed)
Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media.

The class of all enzymes catalyzing oxidoreduction reactions. The substrate that is oxidized is regarded as a hydrogen donor. The systematic name is based on donor:acceptor oxidoreductase. The recommended name will be dehydrogenase, wherever this is possible; as an alternative, reductase can be used. Oxidase is only used in cases where O2 is the acceptor. (Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992, p9)
Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).
Mitochondria in hepatocytes. As in all mitochondria, there are an outer membrane and an inner membrane, together creating two separate mitochondrial compartments: the internal matrix space and a much narrower intermembrane space. In the liver mitochondrion, an estimated 67% of the total mitochondrial proteins is located in the matrix. (From Alberts et al., Molecular Biology of the Cell, 2d ed, p343-4)
Cell Cycle Proteins
Proteins that control the CELL DIVISION CYCLE. This family of proteins includes a wide variety of classes, including CYCLIN-DEPENDENT KINASES, mitogen-activated kinases, CYCLINS, and PHOSPHOPROTEIN PHOSPHATASES as well as their putative substrates such as chromatin-associated proteins, CYTOSKELETAL PROTEINS, and TRANSCRIPTION FACTORS.
Root Canal Irrigants
Chemicals used mainly to disinfect root canals after pulpectomy and before obturation. The major ones are camphorated monochlorophenol, EDTA, formocresol, hydrogen peroxide, metacresylacetate, and sodium hypochlorite. Root canal irrigants include also rinsing solutions of distilled water, sodium chloride, etc.
An alkaloid derived from the bark of the cinchona tree. It is used as an antimalarial drug, and is the active ingredient in extracts of the cinchona that have been used for that purpose since before 1633. Quinine is also a mild antipyretic and analgesic and has been used in common cold preparations for that purpose. It was used commonly and as a bitter and flavoring agent, and is still useful for the treatment of babesiosis. Quinine is also useful in some muscular disorders, especially nocturnal leg cramps and myotonia congenita, because of its direct effects on muscle membrane and sodium channels. The mechanisms of its antimalarial effects are not well understood.
Rats, Inbred Strains
Gene Expression Regulation, Bacterial
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria (GRAM-NEGATIVE FACULTATIVELY ANAEROBIC RODS) commonly found in the lower part of the intestine of warm-blooded animals. It is usually nonpathogenic, but some strains are known to produce DIARRHEA and pyogenic infections. Pathogenic strains (virotypes) are classified by their specific pathogenic mechanisms such as toxins (ENTEROTOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI), etc.
Pentose Phosphate Pathway
An oxidative decarboxylation process that converts GLUCOSE-6-PHOSPHATE to D-ribose-5-phosphate via 6-phosphogluconate. The pentose product is used in the biosynthesis of NUCLEIC ACIDS. The generated energy is stored in the form of NADPH. This pathway is prominent in tissues which are active in the synthesis of FATTY ACIDS and STEROIDS.
RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.
Activities of glucose metabolic enzymes in human preantral follicles: in vitro modulation by follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, epidermal growth factor, insulin-like growth factor I, and transforming growth factor beta1. (1/1318)Modulation of glucose metabolic capacity of human preantral follicles in vitro by gonadotropins and intraovarian growth factors was evaluated by monitoring the activities of phosphofructokinase (PFK) and pyruvate kinase (PK), two regulatory enzymes of the glycolytic pathway, and malate dehydrogenase (MDH), a key mitochondrial enzyme of the Krebs cycle. Preantral follicles in classes 1 and 2 from premenopausal women were cultured separately in vitro in the absence or presence of FSH, LH, epidermal growth factor (EGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I), or transforming growth factor beta1 (TGFbeta1) for 24 h. Mitochondrial fraction was separated from the cytosolic fraction, and both fractions were used for enzyme assays. FSH and LH significantly stimulated PFK and PK activities in class 1 and 2 follicles; however, a 170-fold increase in MDH activity was noted for class 2 follicles that were exposed to FSH. Although both EGF and TGFbeta1 stimulated glycolytic and Krebs cycle enzymes for class 1 preantral follicles, TGFbeta1 consistently stimulated the activities of both glycolytic enzymes more than that of EGF. IGF-I induced PK and MDH activities in class 1 follicles but negatively influenced PFK activity for class 1 follicles. In general, only gonadotropins consistently stimulated both glycolytic and Krebs cycle enzyme activities several-fold in class 2 follicles. These results suggest that gonadotropins and ovarian growth factors differentially influence follicular energy-producing capacity from glucose. Moreover, gonadotropins may either directly influence glucose metabolism in class 2 preantral follicles or do so indirectly through factors other than the well-known intraovarian growth factors. Because growth factors modulate granulosa cell mitosis and functionality, their role on energy production may be related to specific cellular activities. (+info)
Activities of citrate synthase, NAD+-linked and NADP+-linked isocitrate dehydrogenases, glutamate dehydrogenase, aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase in nervous tissues from vertebrates and invertebrates. (2/1318)1. The activities of citrate synthase and NAD+-linked and NADP+-linked isocitrate dehydrogenases were measured in nervous tissue from different animals in an attempt to provide more information about the citric acid cycle in this tissue. In higher animals the activities of citrate synthase are greater than the sum of activities of the isocitrate dehydrogenases, whereas they are similar in nervous tissues from the lower animals. This suggests that in higher animals the isocitrate dehydrogenase reaction is far-removed from equilibrium. If it is assumed that isocitrate dehydrogenase activities provide an indication of the maximum flux through the citric acid cycle, the maximum glycolytic capacity in nervous tissue is considerably greater than that of the cycle. This suggest that glycolysis can provide energy in excess of the aerobic capacity of the tissue. 2. The activities of glutamate dehydrogenase are high in most nervous tissues and the activities of aspartate aminotransferase are high in all nervous tissue investigated. However, the activities of alanine aminotransferase are low in all tissues except the ganglia of the waterbug and cockroach. In these insect tissues, anaerobic glycolysis may result in the formation of alanine rather than lactate. (+info)
The importance of pyruvate availability to PDC activation and anaplerosis in human skeletal muscle. (3/1318)No studies have singularly investigated the relationship between pyruvate availability, pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC) activation, and anaplerosis in skeletal muscle. This is surprising given the functional importance attributed to these processes in normal and disease states. We investigated the effects of changing pyruvate availability with dichloroacetate (DCA), epinephrine, and pyruvate infusions on PDC activation and accumulation of acetyl groups and tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle intermediates (TCAI) in human muscle. DCA increased resting PDC activity sixfold (P < 0.05) but decreased the muscle TCAI pool (mmol/kg dry muscle) from 1.174 +/- 0.042 to 0.747 +/- 0.055 (P < 0.05). This was probably a result of pyruvate being diverted to acetyl-CoA and acetylcarnitine after near-maximal activation of PDC by DCA. Conversely, neither epinephrine nor pyruvate activated PDC. However, both increased the TCAI pool (1.128 +/- 0.076 to 1.614 +/- 0.188, P < 0.05 and 1.098 +/- 0.059 to 1.385 +/- 0.114, P < 0.05, respectively) by providing a readily available pool of pyruvate for anaplerosis. These data support the hypothesis that TCAI pool expansion is principally a reflection of increased muscle pyruvate availability and, together with our previous work (J. A. Timmons, S. M. Poucher, D. Constantin-Teodosiu, V. Worrall, I. A. Macdonald, and P. L. Greenhaff. J. Clin. Invest. 97: 879-883, 1996), indicate that TCA cycle expansion may be of little functional significance to TCA cycle flux. It would appear therefore that the primary effect of DCA on oxidative ATP provision is to provide a readily available pool of acetyl groups to the TCA cycle at the onset of exercise rather than increasing TCA cycle flux by expanding the TCAI pool.

Low oxygen inhibits but complex high-glucose medium facilitates in vitro maturation of squirrel monkey oocyte-granulosa cell complexes. (4/1318)PURPOSE: The objectives of these in vitro maturation studies in primate cumulus-oocyte complexes (COCs) were to evaluate the effect of a reduced-oxygen environment and to compare medium with a high-glucose concentration to medium with pyruvate but no glucose. METHODS: COCs were retrieved from squirrel monkeys stimulated with 1 mg of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) for 4-6 days. Experiment 1 examined maturation after 48 hr in 5% O2/5% CO2/90% N2 compared with 5% CO2/air. The medium was CMRL-1066 containing moderate glucose (5.5 mM) supplemented with 1 mM glutamine, 0.33 mM pyruvate, 0.075 IU/ml human FSH, 5 IU/ml human chorionic gonadotropin, 75 U penicillin G/ml, and 20% fetal bovine serum. Experiment 2 in 5% CO2/air, compared P-1 medium (pyruvate and lactate but no glucose) to Waymouth's medium (27.5 mM glucose), both with identical supplements. RESULTS: Only 3 (8%) of 37 COCs matured in 5% O2, while 39 (49%) of 80 matured in ambient O2. Fourteen (22%) of 64 complexes matured in P-1 medium, compared to 47 (49%) of 96 meiosis II oocytes in Waymouth's medium (P < 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: These are the first primate studies showing detrimental effects of reduced-oxygen culture on in vitro maturation. Additionally, maturation was enhanced with complex high-glucose medium suggesting that the predominant metabolism is aerobic glycolysis. (+info)
A minimal mechanism for bacterial pattern formation. (5/1318)Colonies of Escherichia coli or Salmonella typhimurium form geometrically complex patterns when exposed to, or feeding on, intermediates of the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. In response to the TCA cycle intermediate, the bacteria secrete aspartate, a potent chemo-attractant. As a result, the cells form high-density aggregates arranged in striking regular patterns. The simplest are temporary spots formed in a liquid medium by both E. coli and S. typhimurium. In semi-solid medium S. typhimurium forms concentric rings arising from a low-density bacterial lawn, which are either continuous or spotted, whereas E. coli forms complex patterns arising from a dense swarm ring, including interdigitated spots (also called sunflower spirals), radial spots, radial stripes and chevrons. We present a mathematical model that captures all three of the pattern-forming processes experimentally observed in both E. coli and S. typhimurium, using a minimum of assumptions. (+info)
The tricarboxylic acid cycle of Helicobacter pylori. (6/1318)The composition and properties of the tricarboxylic acid cycle of the microaerophilic human pathogen Helicobacter pylori were investigated in situ and in cell extracts using [1H]- and [13C]-NMR spectroscopy and spectrophotometry. NMR spectroscopy assays enabled highly specific measurements of some enzyme activities, previously not possible using spectrophotometry, in in situ studies with H. pylori, thus providing the first accurate picture of the complete tricarboxylic acid cycle of the bacterium. The presence, cellular location and kinetic parameters of citrate synthase, aconitase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, alpha-ketoglutarate oxidase, fumarate reductase, fumarase, malate dehydrogenase, and malate synthase activities in H. pylori are described. The absence of other enzyme activities of the cycle, including alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, succinyl-CoA synthetase, and succinate dehydrogenase also are shown. The H. pylori tricarboxylic acid cycle appears to be a noncyclic, branched pathway, characteristic of anaerobic metabolism, directed towards the production of succinate in the reductive dicarboxylic acid branch and alpha-ketoglutarate in the oxidative tricarboxylic acid branch. Both branches were metabolically linked by the presence of alpha-ketoglutarate oxidase activity. Under the growth conditions employed, H. pylori did not possess an operational glyoxylate bypass, owing to the absence of isocitrate lyase activity; nor a gamma-aminobutyrate shunt, owing to the absence of both gamma-aminobutyrate transaminase and succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase activities. The catalytic and regulatory properties of the H. pylori tricarboxylic acid cycle enzymes are discussed by comparing their amino acid sequences with those of other, more extensively studied enzymes.

Replenishment and depletion of citric acid cycle intermediates in skeletal muscle. Indication of pyruvate carboxylation. (7/1318)The effects of various substrates on the concentrations of free amino acids, citric acid cycle intermediates and acylcarnitines were studies in perfused hindquarter of rat in presence of glucose and insulin in order to assess regulatory mechanisms of the level of citric acid cycle intermediates in skeletal muscle. 1. Acetate and acetoacetate effected a significant increase in the level of citrate cycle intermediates and accumulation of acetylcarnitine. These changes were accompanied by a reduction in the level of alanine. The concentration of AMP was significantly elevated. 2. Muscle mitochondria fixed 14CO2 in the presence of pyruvate. The products were identified as malate or citrate when whole and disintegrated mitochondria were used respectively. The fixation was greatly stimulated by acetylcarnitine. 3. Acetylcarnitine inhibited the production of pyruvate from malate by muscle mitochondria. 4. Perfusion with 2-oxoisocaproate and 2-oxoisovalerate promoted increases in the level of citric cycle intermediates, a drop in both alanine and glutamate, and accumulation of branched-chain acylcarnitines. 2-Oxoisocaproate also caused a reduction of alanine released from the muscle. 5. Perfusion with leucine and valine did not change the concentration of citric acid cycle intermediates, but elevated glutamate and still more the concentration of alanine. 6. It is concluded that citric cycle intermediate level in the perfused resting muscle is modified by a) conditions which change the concentration of acetyl-CoA and thereby modify the rate of pyruvate carboxylation and decarboxylation of malate via malic enzyme b) conditions which change the concentration of pyruvate cause changes in alanine and cycle intermediates in the same direction via transamination reactions c) conditions which change the concentrations of 2-oxoacids which are converted to cycle intermediates via oxidation.

Microbial oxidation of methane and methanol: isolation of methane-utilizing bacteria and characterization of a facultative methane-utilizing isolate. (8/1318)A methane-utilizing organism capable of growth both on methane and on more complex organic substrates as a sole source of carbon and energy, has been isolated and studied in detail. Suspensions of methane-grown cells of this organism oxidized C-1 compounds (methane, methanol, formaldehyde, formate); hydrocarbons (ethane, propane); primary alcohols (ethanol, propanol); primary aldehydes (acetaldehyde, propionaldehyde); alkenes (ethylene, propylene); dimethylether; and organic acids (acetate, malate, succinate, isocitrate). Suspensions of methanol-or succinate-grown cells did not oxidize methane, ethane, propane, ethylene, propylene, or dimethylether, suggesting that the enzymatic systems required for oxidation of these substrates are induced only during growth on methane. Extracts of methane-grown cells contained a particulate reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent methane monooxygenase activity. Oxidation of methanol, formaldehyde, and primary alcohols was catalyzed by a phenazine methosulfate-linked, ammonium ion-requiring methanol dehydrogenase. Oxidation of primary aldehydes was catalyzed by a phenazine methosulfate-linked, ammonium ion-independent aldehyde dehydrogenase. Formate was oxidized by a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-specific formate dehydrogenase. Extracts of methane-grown, but not succinate-grown, cells contained the key enzymes of the serine pathway, hydroxypyruvate reductase and malate lyase, indicating that the enzymes of C-1 assimilation are induced only during growth on C-1 compounds. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase was induced during growth on glucose. Extracts of methane-grown cells contained low levels of enzymes of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, including alpha-keto glutarate dehydrogenase, relative to the levels found during growth on succinate.

Citric Acid Cycle
The glyxoylate shunt consists of two enzymes, isocitrate lyase and malate synthase. Its function is generally anaplerotic, meaning that it replenishes TCA cycle intermediates. Isocitrate (one intermediate) becomes succinate (one intermediate) plus glyoxylate. Glyoxylate plus an acetyl group from acetyl-CoA becomes malate, a second intermediate, for a gain of one. Acetyl groups, such as from fatty acid metabolism, by means of this pathway, can provide TCA cycle intermediates for use in amino acid biosynthesis and other biosynthetic pathways ...
Citric acid cycle - Wikipedia
Several catabolic pathways converge on the citric acid cycle. Most of these reactions add intermediates to the citric acid cycle, and are therefore known as anaplerotic reactions, from the Greek meaning to fill up. These increase the amount of acetyl CoA that the cycle is able to carry, increasing the mitochondrions capability to carry out respiration if this is otherwise a limiting factor. Processes that remove intermediates from the cycle are termed cataplerotic reactions. In this section and in the next, the citric acid cycle intermediates are indicated in italics to distinguish them from other substrates and end-products. Pyruvate molecules produced by glycolysis are actively transported across the inner mitochondrial membrane, and into the matrix. Here they can be oxidized and combined with coenzyme A to form CO2, acetyl-CoA, and NADH, as in the normal cycle.. However, it is also possible for pyruvate to be carboxylated by pyruvate carboxylase to form oxaloacetate. This latter ...

The growth and survival of cancer cells is dependent on extracellular glutamine, which is frequently depleted in solid tumors, resulting in the induction of apoptosis. Glutamine has been suggested to maintain cancer cell viability by replenishing intermediates for the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle and supporting de novo biosynthesis of nucleotides and nonessential amino acids. Zhang and colleagues sought to characterize the mechanism by which glutamine withdrawal induces apoptosis using a high-throughput RNAi-based screen to identify genes whose loss protected MYC-transformed cells from apoptosis following glutamine withdrawal. Intriguingly, depletion of the TCA cycle enzyme citrate synthase (CS) protected cancer cells from glutamine withdrawal-induced cell death. In the absence of glutamine, knockdown of CS resulted in diminished glycolytic flux through the TCA cycle and redirection of the TCA cycle intermediate oxaloacetate to the synthesis of the nonessential amino acids aspartate and ...

Influence of Threonine Metabolism on S-Adenosylmethionine and Histone Methylation | Science
To test this pathway, we traced the metabolic fate of [U-14C]Thr in mESCs with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). 14C was incorporated into Gly and Glu, indicating that Thr was used to synthesize these amino acids (Fig. 2B). In contrast, MEFs incubated with [U-14C]Thr did not exhibit Thr catabolism (fig. S2A). We also traced the fate of [U-13C]Thr in mESCs with LC-MS/MS metabolomics (fig. S2, B to F, and table S1). mESCs used Thr to synthesize acetyl-CoA-derived tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle intermediates (Fig. 2, C and D). At steady state, [U-13C]Thr contributed ~20% of the citrate via acetyl-CoA, whereas [U-13C]glucose contributed ~35% via acetyl-CoA (+2 isotopomer). Thus, Thr contributes significantly to the acetyl-CoA pool in mESCs (Fig. 2D). [U-13C]Thr-derived Gly also donated its 13C-methyl group to ultimately generate 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5mTHF) and SAM (+1 isotopomer), whereas [U-13C]Ser-derived Gly contributed little to the synthesis of these metabolites (Fig. 2, C and ...

JCI - Mitochondrial role in the neonatal predisposition to developing nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Based on nonhuman primate and limited human data, offspring exposed to overnutrition in utero have increased hepatic lipid storage and de novo lipogenesis, coupled with incomplete β-oxidation and diminished electron transport chain (ETC) activity, leading to accumulation of long-chain acylcarnitines (LCACs) and diminished ATP production. Anaplerosis through branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) catabolism compensates for limitations in TCA cycle intermediates. This fuel overload and excess in lipid result in production of ROS. Damage is mitigated by glutathione (GSH) and upregulation of SIRT1 (SRT). Hepatic apoptosis is minimal (but existing). As time progresses and damage, inflammation, and lipid accumulation worsen, mitochondria develop structural abnormalities and diminish in content and activity. This is exacerbated by diet and the microbiome. β-Oxidative function and ETC activity worsen. Intramitochondrial lipid and acylcarnitine accumulation leads to increased ROS and reactive nitrogen ...
Mitochondria and effector functions of human CD8* T cells - edoc
How mitochondrial differences contribute to early effector response in memory CD8+ T cells is still elusive. In manuscript 2, we studied the impact of glucose oxidation in mitochondria on early effector functions in both naïve and memory CD8+ T cells. Metabolomic and glucose tracing experiments assessing metabolic intermediates in both subsets revealed that glycolysis and TCA cycle intermediates were elevated in activated memory CD8+ T cells upon activation. Moreover, we demonstrated that mitochondrial respiration was increased early after activation in memory CD8+ T cells. Blocking mitochondrial respiration diminished early-recall response in memory CD8+ T cells. This suggests that both glycolysis and glucose flux into the TCA are important for rapid IFN-γ secretion. Additionally, we also demonstrated that key components of the mTORC2-Akt axis are present in the mitochondria associated membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum in CD8+ T cells, suggesting a close association between mTORC2-Akt ...
Metabolic pathways and cancer growth--2008 review
The model shows some of the prominent aspects of metabolism in proliferating cells, including glycolysis; lactate production; the use of TCA cycle intermediates as macromolecular precursors; and the biosynthesis of proteins, nucleotides, and lipids. The PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway, HIF-1α, and Myc participate in various facets of this metabolic phenotype. The binding of a growth factor (GF) to its surface receptor brings about activation of PI3K and the serine/threonine kinases Akt and mTOR (top left). Constitutive activation of the pathway can occur in tumors due to mutation of the tumor suppressors PTEN, TSC1, and TSC2, or by other mechanisms (see text). Metabolic effects of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway include enhanced uptake of glucose and essential amino acids and protein translation. The transcription factor HIF-1α (bottom) is involved in determining the manner in which cells utilize glucose carbon. Translation of HIF-1α is enhanced during growth-factor stimulation of the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway. ...

In the fed state, most fatty acid-derived acylcarnitine species were present at similar levels in wild-type compared to the knockout mice. Notable exceptions included acetylcarnitine (C2) and beta-OH-butyrylcarnitine (C4OH, a strong marker of beta-oxidation and ketone metabolism), both of which were markedly decreased in plasma, liver, and skeletal muscle of PPARalpha -/- mice regardless of feeding status.

TCA Cycle (Mus musculus) - WikiPathways
The citric acid cycle, also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle) or the Krebs cycle, (or rarely, the Szent-Gyorgyi-Krebs cycle) is a series of enzyme-catalysed chemical reactions of central importance in all living cells that use oxygen as part of cellular respiration. In eukaryotes, the citric acid cycle occurs in the matrix of the mitochondrion. The components and reactions of the citric acid cycle were established by seminal work from both Albert Szent-Gyorgyi and Hans Krebs. [From Wikipedia ...
Reverse Krebs cycle - Wikipedia
The reverse Krebs cycle (also known as the reverse tricarboxylic acid cycle, the reverse TCA cycle, or the reverse citric acid cycle) is a sequence of chemical reactions that are used by some bacteria to produce carbon compounds from carbon dioxide and water. The reaction is the citric acid cycle run in reverse: Where the Krebs cycle takes complex carbon molecules in the form of sugars and oxidizes them to CO2 and water, the reverse cycle takes CO2 and water to make carbon compounds. This process is used by some bacteria to synthesise carbon compounds, sometimes using hydrogen, sulfide, or thiosulfate as electron donors. In this process, it can be seen as an alternative to the fixation of inorganic carbon in the reductive pentose phosphate cycle which occurs in a wide variety of microbes and higher organisms. The reaction is a possible candidate for prebiotic early-earth conditions and, so, is of interest in the research of the origin of life. It has been found that some non-consecutive ...
Activation enhancement of citric acid cycle to promote bioelectrocatalytic activity of arcA knockout Escherichia coli toward...
The bioelectrocatalysis in microbial fuel cells (MFCs) relies on both electrochemistry and metabolism of microbes. We discovered that under MFC microaerobic condition, an arcA knockout mutant Escherichia coli (arcA-) shows enhanced activation of the citric acid cycle (TCA cycle) for glycerol oxidation, as indicated by the increased key enzymes activity in the TCA cycle. Meanwhile, a diffusive electron mediator (hydroxyl quinone derivative) is excreted by the genetically engineered arcA-, resulting in a much higher power density than its parental strain toward glycerol oxidation. This work demonstrates that metabolic engineering is a feasible approach to construct efficient bioelectrocatalysts for high-performance MFCs ...
Metabolite Profiles During Oral Glucose Challenge
To identify distinct biological pathways of glucose metabolism, we conducted a systematic evaluation of biochemical changes after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in a community-based population. Metabolic profiling was performed on 377 nondiabetic Framingham Offspring cohort participants (mean age 57 years, 42% women, BMI 30 kg/m2) before and after OGTT. Changes in metabolite levels were evaluated with paired Student t tests, cluster-based analyses, and multivariable linear regression to examine differences associated with insulin resistance. Of 110 metabolites tested, 91 significantly changed with OGTT (P ≤ 0.0005 for all). Amino acids, β-hydroxybutyrate, and tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates decreased after OGTT, and glycolysis products increased, consistent with physiological insulin actions. Other pathways affected by OGTT included decreases in serotonin derivatives, urea cycle metabolites, and B vitamins. We also observed an increase in conjugated, and a decrease in ...
Citric Acid Cycle and Oxidative Phosphorylation | Open Textbooks for Hong Kong
The citric acid cycle is a series of chemical reactions that removes high-energy electrons and uses them in the electron transport chain to generate ATP. One molecule of ATP (or an equivalent) is produced per each turn of the cycle. The electron transport chain is the portion of aerobic respiration that uses free oxygen as the final electron acceptor for electrons removed from the intermediate compounds in glucose catabolism. The electrons are passed through a series of chemical reactions, with a small amount of free energy used at three points to transport hydrogen ions across the membrane. This contributes to the gradient used in chemiosmosis. As the electrons are passed from NADH or ...

Respiration: Types and Significance | Biology EduCare
Citric acid cycle consists of number of reactions which produce NADH and FADH₂ and then they are used by the oxidative phosphorylation pathway to make ATP which then passes through the electron transport system. The citric acid cycle happens in the matrix of the mitochondria of the cell. The oxydation of pyruvic acid takes place through a series of reaction. These reactions produced through a cycle known as tricarboxylic acid cycle. It is also known as TCA cycle. The first product in this cycle is cytric acid hence it is called the citric acid cycle or CAC. ...

5. Oxidative Phosphorylation - Module 3: Glucose oxidation and energy production | Coursera
Welcome back to my Coursera class, Biochemical Principles of Energy Metabolism. This is final session for week three, final session. Its about Oxidative Phosphorylation. Im just showing you the same slide repeatedly. Step number one of glucose degradation is glycolysis, C6 glucose phosphorylated. Its like energy and investment period and then, the glucose molecules will be split into C3 compound. We extract a little bit of ATP molecules and then pyruvic acid getting into the mitochondrial matrix. Inside of mitochondria matrix, there is citric acid cycle. Throughout this citric acid cycle, the carbon backbones will be fully oxidized and CO2 will be released and we can extract a lot of reduced electron carriers, throughout those oxidation, NAD, reduced NADH or FADH2. This is step number two. So far, in terms of number of ATP molecules, we cannot say glycolysis citric acid cycle are highly efficient energy-generating processes because during the glycolysis, four ATP molecules are produced. In ...
catabolic role of tca cycle
New studies suggest that lactate can be used as a source of carbon for the TCA cycle. Calcium is also used as a regulator in the citric acid cycle. The remainder of the reactions of the TCA cycle serve to regenerate the initial four-carbon acceptor of acetyl coenzyme A (oxaloacetate) from succinate, the process requiring in effect the oxidation of a methylene group (―CH 2 ―) to a carbonyl group (―CO―), … Citrate is used for feedback inhibition, as it inhibits phosphofructokinase, an enzyme involved in glycolysis that catalyses formation of fructose 1,6-bisphosphate, a precursor of pyruvate.

Nitric Oxide Modulates Metabolic Remodeling in Inflammatory Macrophages through TCA Cycle Regulation and Itaconate Accumulation...
Classical activation of macrophages (M(LPS+IFNγ)) elicits the expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), generating large amounts of NO and inhibiting mitochondrial respiration. Upregulation of glycolysis and a disrupted tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle underpin this switch to a pro-inflammatory phenotype. We show that the NOS cofactor tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) modulates IL-1β production and key aspects of metabolic remodeling in activated murine macrophages via NO production. Using two complementary genetic models, we reveal that NO modulates levels of the essential TCA cycle metabolites citrate and succinate, as well as the inflammatory mediator itaconate. Furthermore, NO regulates macrophage respiratory function via changes in the abundance of critical N-module subunits in Complex I. However, NO-deficient cells can still upregulate glycolysis despite changes in the abundance of glycolytic intermediates and proteins involved in glucose metabolism. Our findings reveal a fundamental role for

Adenosine triphosphate - wikidoc
In the mitochondrion, pyruvate is oxidized by the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex to acetyl CoA, which is fully oxidized to carbon dioxide by the citric acid cycle (also known as the Krebs Cycle). Every turn of the citric acid cycle produces two molecules of carbon dioxide, one molecule of the ATP equivalent guanosine triphosphate (GTP) through substrate-level phosphorylation catalyzed by succinyl CoA synthetase, three molecules of the reduced coenzyme NADH, and one molecule of the reduced coenzyme FADH2. Both of these latter molecules are recycled to their oxidized states (NAD+ and FAD, respectively) via the electron transport chain, which generates additional ATP by oxidative phosphorylation. The oxidation of an NADH molecule results in the synthesis of about 3 ATP molecules, and the oxidation of one FADH2 yields about 2 ATP molecules. The majority of cellular ATP is generated by this process. Although the citric acid cycle itself does not involve molecular oxygen, it is an obligately ...

Most animals are able to generate energy using either aerobic or anaerobic metabolic pathways, with glycolytic anaerobic respiration generating approximately 2 ATP molecules and aerobic respiration (citric acid cycle+oxidative phosphorylation) approximately 36.. Although the citric acid cycle does not directly rely on free oxygen, it does not take place under anaerobic conditions. As there is no free oxygen to act as the final electron acceptor, the intermediates all along the oxidative phosphorylation chain remain in a reduced state. As a result, the chain stops functioning, and the build up of the end products means (via Le Chateliers Principle) that the citric acid cycle, too, halts. However, glycolysis can still occur, leading to a build up of pyruvate and a small amount of ATP (two to three molecules).. So much for the basic biochemistry, the broad outline of which is extremely well known. What is less well known, however, is the presence of a variety of anaerobic respiratory pathways in ...

Glucose catabolism via cellular respiration can be grouped into three major metabolic stages, these are (1) glycolysis, (2) the Krebs cycle also known as the citric acid cycle, and the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle), and (3) the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation. In eukaryotic cells, glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. The Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondrial matrix while the reactions of the electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation occur on the cristae of the mitochondrion. These pathways rely on oxidation reduction reactions in which electrons are enzymatically removed (oxidation) from glucose and transferred (reduction) to electron acceptor molecules such as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). Upon receiving electrons, NAD+ is reduced to NADH which functions as an electron carrier that supplies electrons to an electron transport chain in mitochondria that will ultimately power ATP synthesis in the reactions known as oxidative ...

ATP, which stands for adenosine triphosphate, is the sole source of energy for all human metabolism, yet very little of this fuel is actually stored in the body. ANSWER:Electrons gain energy as they move down the chain. When ADP and Pi are bound to ATP synthetase, the excess of protons (H+) that has formed outside of the mitochondria (an H+ gradient) moves back into the mitochondrion through the enzyme complex. In the first, intermediate compounds of the central routes of metabolism are diverted from further catabolism and are channeled into pathways that usually lead to the formation of the relatively small molecules that serve as the building blocks, or precursors, of macromolecules. Passage of protons (H+) through it from inside to outside generates ATP. Which energy system produces ATP at the slowest rate?

In this study, we focused on the analysis of proteins with basic pI values, most of which were missed by most researchers in previous proteomic studies of CRC (7, 10, 12). Although there are equal amounts of proteins with basic (,7) or acidic (,7) pI values in most eukaryotic organisms (13), most important cytosolic glycolytic and mitochondrial tricarboxylic acid cycle enzymes are basic proteins as demonstrated by the proteomic analysis of human colon crypt (15) and further confirmed by our study.. Glycolysis has been shown to be elevated in almost all cancers, the so-called Warburg effect (23). And many cancers show dysfunction of mitochondria (14, 23, 24). The increased aerobic glycolysis for ATP generation in cancer cells is frequently associated with mitochondrial respiration defects and hypoxia (25, 26). A recent report showed that inhibition of glycolysis in colon cancer cells could overcome drug resistance (against common anticancer agents) associated with mitochondrial respiratory ...

Secondly, the 39ATPs are calculated from the degradtion of glucose during glycolysis during one complete cycle going through all the steps to the breakdown to pyruvate and then through the citric acid cycle. Depending on several factors in the citric acid cycle the amount can come down to 36, 38 or 39 ATPs. This might seem confusing but it all depends on whether endproducts are used in other cycles as well, if theyre used for anabolism the final yield will of course be less since this consumes ATP. Just remember that breakdown of glucose through oxidative phosphoryylation yields about 36-39 ATPs, much less than just breaking down glucose to lactic acid ...

Sandwalk: The evolution of the citric acid cycle
The irreducibly complex biochemical systems that I have discussed in this book did not have to be produced recently. It is entirely possible, based simply on an examination of the systems themselves, that they were designed billions of years ago and that they have been passed down to the present by the normal processes of cellular reproduction. Perhaps a speculative scenario will illustrate the point. Suppose that nearly four billion years ago the designer made the first cell, already containing all of the irreducibly complex biochemical systems discussed here and many others. (One can postulate that the designs for systems that were to be used later, such as blood clotting, were present but not turned on. In present-day organisms plenty of genes are turned off for a while, sometimes for generations, to be turned on at a later time.) Additionally. suppose the designer placed into the cell some other systems for which we cannot adduce enough evidence to conclude design. The cell containing the ...
