Metabolism Meets at the Citric Acid Cycle
Lecture no. 13 from the course: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology: How Life Works
Taught by Professor Kevin Ahern | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
The products from the reactions in the previous lecture now enter the Krebs citric acid cycle. The outcome of these reactions, in turn, link to many other pathways, with the Krebs cycle serving as the hub directing the intricate traffic of metabolic intermediates. After decoding the Krebs cycle, use it to illuminate a deep mystery about cancer cells, which suggests new therapies for the disease.
