Structure and function: As a key intermediate generated from the oxidation of glucose and fatty acids, acetyl-CoA enters the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. The TCA cycle produces reduced flavin adenine dinucleotide (FADH2) and reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), which donate electrons to the mitochondrial electron transport chain (ETC). The inter-membrane space, between the inner and … Continue reading Mitochondria
