Question

What happens to the 3 carbons in the krebs cycle.

1 Answer

  • Answer:

    Tthe 3-carbon pyruvate molecule made in glycolysis loses a carbon to produce a new, 2-carbon molecule called acetyl CoA. The carbon that is removed takes two oxygens from pyruvate with it, and exits the body as carbon dioxide (CO 2​start subscript, 2, end subscriptt).
