Re: Krebs Cycle question

... of steps. The rate-limiting step for citrate synthase (the mixed condensation reaction between acetyl-CoA and oxaloacetate to form citrate) is the enolization of the acetyl group which then acts as a nucleophile toward bound oxaloacetate. Water--freely available from the environment--preferentially ...

... distributed state of substances that possess a carbonyl group. Usually, tautomeric equilibrium is strongly shifted toward the keto-tautomer. Enolization of the lipid ester carbonyl and substitution of two protons in lipid molecules by a magnesium ion is a highly unlikely, yet not prohibited ...
