Describe the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle as another multi-enzyme system involved in respiration

  • There are many enzymes involved in the TCA cycle. Each one acts as a catalyst for a different reaction.
  • There are eight reactions in the TCA cycle involving enzymes.
  • Enzymes involved in the TCA cycle include: citrate synthase, acontinase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, ketoglutarate dehydrogenase, succinyl-CoA synthase, succinate dehydrogenase, fumarase, and malate dehydrogenase.
