Krebs cycle is a chemical reactions used to release energy in all aerobic organisms. It’s a part of cellular respiration takes place inside mitochondria but in prokaryotes, it take place in the cytoplasm. Other names of the cycle are citric acid cycle and Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle. The citric acid cycle has total of eight steps.
Respiration cycle produces ATP and releases CO2. ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) carries energy in chemical form is used in cell processes. The end products of single turn of cycle are 1ATP, 3 NADH, 1 FADH2, 1 QH2 (ubiquinol) and 2CO2.It plays a vital role in metabolic reprogramming in innate immunity and inflammation. It also provides a link between carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism.
