Each of the following is a regulator of PFK-1 EXCEPT: citrate, succinate, AMP, ATP.
Citrate synthase, isocitrate dehydrogenase, and alpha ketoglutarate dehydrogenase all have in common that they are ACTIVATED (up-regulated) by ____
Pyruvate can be used to generate acetyl-CoA, oxaloacetate, and which other TCA intermediate?
Aspartate enters the mitochondrial matrix through an antiporter that exports which compound?
What is the oxidized form of the cofactor of glycerol-3-phosphate?
NADH can be generated in the brain from the breakdown of ketones using which enzyme?
What is the alpha ketoacid of aspartate?
Where is succinate dehydrogenase located in the cell?
Which electron-carrier cofactor of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex is riboflavin-based?
What thiamine deficiency disease is typically seen in anorexic patients?
Where in the cell is the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex located?

Beta oxidation can be halted by inhibiting CAT1 (carnitine acyltransferase 1) with which intermediate of FA synthesis?
The beta oxidation of odd-numbered FA chains will lead to which TCA intermediate?

What is the name of the three carbon compound that is left over at the end of beta oxidation of an odd-numbered FA chain?
Beta-hydroxybutyrate is one ketone body that is able to be used for energy in peripheral tissues. What is the other?
The reason the liver cannot utilize ketone bodies for energy is that it lacks this enzyme.
