Question

In Krebs cycle, 5-carbon compound formed is


A
α-ketoglutaric acid
loader
B
fumaric acid
loader
C
citric acid
loader
D
malic acid
loader

Solution

The correct option is A $$\alpha$$-ketoglutaric acid
 Isocitrate dehydrogenase or IDH is an enzyme that participates in the citric acid cycle. It catalyzes the third step of the cycle: the oxidative decarboxylation of isocitrate, producing alpha-ketoglutarate (α-ketoglutarate) a 5- carbon compound and CO2 while converting NAD+ to NADH.
So, the correct option is, 'α-ketoglutaric acid'.
