    The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex links glycolysis to the TCA cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle). The oxidation of pyruvate occurs in the mitochondria of the cell. Step B: The reactive carbon (between the N and the S of the five membered ring) of the TPP is oxidized and transferred as the acetyl group to lipoamide (which is the prosthetic group of the dihydrolipoyl transacetylase). What is the name of the enzyme that transports the pyruvate into the PDH?

    The entropy, which is the level of disorder, of ADP is greater than that of ATP. The continual synthesis of ATP and the immediate usage of it results in ATP having a very fast turnover rate. For example, it takes only a few seconds for half of the ATP molecules in a cell to be converted into ADP to be used in driving endergonic (non-spontaneous) reactions and then converted back into ATP using exergonic (spontaneous) reactions.
