Lecture 26 –TCA cycle
Figure 21-17bFactors controlling the activity of the PDC. (b) Covalent modification in the eukaryotic complex. Page 781
Control by phosporylation/dephosphorylation Occurs only in eukaryotic complexes The E2 subunit has both a pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase and pyruvate dehydrogenase phosphatase that act to regulate the E1 subunit. Kinase inactivates the E1 subunit. Phosphatase activates the subunit. Ca 2+ is an important secondary messenger, it enhances phosphatase activity.
Citric acid cycle: 8 enzymes Oxidize an acetyl group to 2 CO 2 molecules and generates 3 NADH, 1 FADH 2, and 1 GTP. 1.Citrate synthase: catalyzes the condensation of acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to yield citrate. 2.Aconitase: isomerizes citrate to the easily oxidized isocitrate. 3.Isocitrate dehydrogenase: oxidizes isocitrate to the -keto acid oxalosuccinate, coupled to NADH formation. Oxalosuccinate is then decarboxylated to form -ketoglutarate. (1st NADH and CO 2 ). -ketoglutarate dehydrogenase: oxidatively decarboxylates - ketoglutarate to succinyl-CoA. (2nd NADH and CO 2 ). 5.Succinyl-CoA synthetase converts succinyl-CoA to succinate. Forms GTP. 6.Succinate dehydrogenase: catalyzes the oxidation of central single bond of succinate to a trans double bond, yielding fumarate and FADH 2. 7.Fumarase: catalyzes the hydration of the double bond to produce malate. 8.Malate dehydrogenase: reforms OAA by oxidizing 2ndary OH group to ketone (3rd NADH)
Citric acid cycle 3NAD + + FAD + GDP + Pi + acetyl-CoA 3NADH + FADH 2 + GTP + CoA + 2CO 2 3NADH + FADH 2 are oxidized by the electron transport chain and drive ATP synthesis.
Citrate synthase: reaction 1 Catalyzes the condensation of acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form citrate. Oxaloacetate has to bind to the enzyme before acetyl-CoA. Oxaloacetate binds to the enzyme causing a conformational shift that opens the acetyl-CoA binding site. (induced fit) Reaction mechanism is a mixed aldol-Claisen ester condensation (acid-base catalysis). Acetyl forms an enol intermediate. Three important amino acids: His274, Asp375, His320 1.The formation of enolate form of acetyl-CoA is the rate-limiting step. Asp375 acts as a general base to remove a proton from the methyl group of the acetyl-CoA. His 274 is hydrogen bonded to acetyl-CoA. 2.Citryl-CoA is formed in a second acid-base catalyzed reaction step. Acetyl-CoA enolate form attacks oxaloacetate. 3.Citryl-CoA is hydrolyzed to citrate and CoA. Stereospecific reactions (acetate onlly forms citrate’s pro-S carboxymethyl group.
Aconitase: reaction 2 Catalyzes the reversible isomerization of citrate and isocitrate with cis-aconitate as an intermediate. Citrate is prochiral so aconitase can distinguish between citrate’s pro-R and pro-S carboxymethyl groups. Has a covalently bound [4Fe-4S] iron-sulfur cluster. Fe a atom coordinates with the OH group of citrate The iron-sulfur cluster does not perform a redox reaction but instead is able to stabilize the ligand-substrate complex. Second stage of the reaction rehydrates cis-aconitate’s double bond in a stereospecific trans addition to form only the 2R,3S isocitrate form.
Isocitrate dehydrogenase: reaction 3 Catalyzes the oxidiation of isocitrate to form a- ketoglutarate 1st reaction to produce NADH and CO 2. Activated by AMP and ADP Inhibited by NADH and NADPH Competitively bind to the NAD+ binding site. Requires Mn 2+ or Mg 2+ cofactor. Mechanistically-oxidize to the b-keto acid. 2 forms of the enzyme Mitochondrial form is NAD+ dependant [ADP] E. coli, mitochondrial, cytoplasmic forms NADP+ dependant.

-ketoglutarte dehydrogenase complex Catalyzes the oxidiation and decarboxylation of - ketoglutarate to produce succinyl-CoA. Consists of -ketoglutarte dehydrogenase (E1), dihydrolipoyl transsuccinylase (E2), and dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase (E3). Mechanistically resembles PDC. 2nd reaction to produce NADH and CO 2. 5 coenzymes (TPP, lipoic acid, CoA, FAD, NAD + ) Product inhibition (Succinyl-CoA), NADH

Succinate dehydrogenase Only makes the trans-fumarate. Donates electrons directly into complex II of the respiratory chain (ubiquinone (Q)). If the respiratory chain is inhibited, FAD is unable to accept electrons and TCA cycle stops. Inhibited by OAA, activated by coenzyme Q (part of electron tranport chain).

Succinate dehydrogenase Catalyzes the stereospecific dehydrogenation of succinate to fumurate. Enzyme strongly inhibited by malonate (competitive inhibitor). Contains an FAD-electron acceptor. FAD functions to oxidize alkanes to alkenes (vs. NAD+ which oxidizes alcohols to aldehydes and ketones). FAD covalently linked to His from enzyme.
Fumarase (fumarate hydratase) Catalyzes the stereospecific dehydrogenation of succinate to fumurate. Only catalyzes the trans-fumarate Competitively inhibited by maleate (cis double- bond).

Pathways that use citric acid cycle intermediates Reactions that utilize intermediates of TCA cycle are called cataplerotic reactions 1.Gluconeogenesis-in cytosol uses OAA. In the mitochondria uses malate (transported across the membrane). 2.Lipid biosynthesis-requires acetyl-CoA. Transported across the membrane by the breakdown of citrate. ATP + citrate + CoA ADP + Pi + oxaloacetate + acetyl-CoA 3.Amino acid biosynthesis-can use -ketoglutarate to form glutamic acid in a reductive amination reaction (uses NAD+ or NADP+ depending on enzyme) -ketoglutarate + NAD(P)H + NH 4 + glutamate + NAD(P) + + H 2 O
Pathways that use citric acid cycle intermediates 3.Amino acid biosynthesis-can also use -ketoglutarate and oxaloacactate in transamination reactions -ketoglutarate + alanine glutamate + pyruvate oxaloacetate + alanine aspartate + pyruvate 4.Porphyrin biosynthesis- utilizes succinyl-CoA 5.Complete oxidation of amino acids - amino acids first converted to PE by PEPCK
Pathways that make citric acid cycle intermediates Reactions that replenish intermediates of TCA cycle are called anaplerotic reactions Pyruvate carboxylase- produces oxaloacetate Pyruvate + CO 2 + ATP + H 2 O oxaloacetate + ADP + Pi Degradative pathways generate TCA cycle intermediates 1.Oxidation of odd-chain fatty acids generates succinyl-CoA 2.Ile, Met, Val generate succinyl-CoA 3.Transamination and deamination of amino acids leads to - ketoglutarate and oxaloacetate.
Each NADH yields ≈ 3ATP Each FADH 2 yields ≈ 2ATP Total yields ≈ 38ATP for each fully oxidized glucose.
Glyoxylate cycle The glyoxylate cycle results in the net conversion of two acetyl-CoA to succinate instead of 4 CO 2 in citric acid cycle. Succinate is transferred to mitochondrion where it can be converted to OAA (TCA) Can go to cytosol where it is converted to oxaloacetate for gluconeogenesis. Net reaction 2Ac-CoA + 2NAD + + FAD OAA + 2CoA + 2NADH +FADH 2 + 2H + Plants are able to convert fatty acids to glucose through this pathway
