Krebs Cycle

Krebs Cycle

The Krebs Cycle is the metabolic cycle fueled by acetyl CoA formed after glycolsis in cellular respiration. Chemical reactions in the citric acid cycle complete the metabolic breakdown of glucose molecules to carbon dioxide. The cycle occurs in the matrix of mitochondria and supplies most of the NADH molecules that carry energy to the electron transport chains. This person’s body is performing the Krebs Cycle for energy.
