Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex and CORI cycle

  1. How many carbons does pyruvate have?
    3 carbons
  2. What is the acrynom for pyruvate dehydrogenase comples?
    • These = Thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP)
    • Five = FAD
    • Co-Enzymes = CO2 / Acetyl Co-A
    • Love = Lipoic Acid
    • Nutrition = NADH
  3. What goes into Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex?
    • Thiamine pyrophosphate
    • FAD
    • Lipoic acid
  4. What comes out of each pyruvate?
    • Co2
    • Acetyl-CoA
    • NADH
  5. Is PDC reversible?
  6. When does the Cori cycle occur?
    When there is a lack of oxygen for pyruvate
  7. What does pyruvate turn into before entering the blood stream and traveling to the liver? Via what enzyme?
    • Lactate
    • enzyme = Lactate dehydrogenase
  8. In the liver what does Lactate turn into? Via what enzyme?
