Which statement is wrong for Krebs' cycle?

  • There are three points in the cycle where NAD+ is reduced to NADH + H+

  • There is one point in the cycle where FAD+ is reduced to FADH2

  • During conversion of succinyl CoA to succinic acid, a molecule of GTP is synthesised

  • The cycle starts with condensation of acetyl group (acetyl CoA) with pyruvic acid to yield citric acid

Answer

D.

The cycle starts with condensation of acetyl group (acetyl CoA) with pyruvic acid to yield citric acid

Krebs cycle starts with condensation of acetyl CoA (2C) with oxaloacetic acid (4C) to form citric acid (6C).
