Heterotrophs and Carbon Fixation

... niger . In order to produce citric acid, the CO2 produced from pyruvate decarboxylation is re-used again by combining it with another pyruvate to produce oxaloacetate (by the action of pyruvate carboxylase and PEP-carboxykinase enzymes). At this stage, we obtain 2 equivalent ...
