The Krebs cycle starts when acetyl CoA reacts with the compound oxaloacetate to form citrate and release coenzyme A, explains Encyclopedia Britannica. The Krebs cycle is also called the tricarboxylic acid cycle and the c... More »

The Krebs cycle occurs in the mitochondria of living cells. It's also called the citric acid cycle and the TCA cycle. The Krebs cycle is necessary for metabolism, in which cells change food into energy. More »

The Krebs cycle, also referred to as the Citric Acid cycle, is the process during which humans and animals break down and metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats. This cycle produces carbon dioxide, water and high-en... More »

Glycolysis is the breakdown of a molecule of glucose into two molecules of pyruvate, while the Krebs cycle is the conversion of the resulting pyruvate molecules into a compound known as acetyl CoA. Both of these steps oc... More »
