Lesson Worksheet: The Link Reaction and Krebs Cycle Biology
In this worksheet, we will practice describing the steps of the link reaction and the Krebs cycle and recalling the products of each.
In the link reaction, what compound is removed from pyruvate to help form acetyl-CoA?
- BCarbon dioxide
In the link reaction, pyruvate is converted to acetyl-CoA. During this process, what happens to the coenzyme NAD?
- AIt is hydrolyzed.
- BIt is oxidized.
- CIt is reduced.
- DIt is phosphorylated.
