Reaction 10: Oxidation
This is the final reaction in the citric acid cycle. The reaction
is the oxidation of an alcohol to a ketone to make oxaloacetic
acid. The coenzyme NAD+ causes the transfer of two hydrogens
and 2 electrons to NADH + H+. This is a final entry
point into the electron transport chain.
This reaction is catalyzed by malate dehydrogenase.
