  • Organic - Oxaloacetate
  • Chemistry - Citrate
  • Is - Iso-Citrate
  • Only - Oxalosuccinate
  • A Core - A-Ketoglutarate
  • Subject ‘Cos - Succinyl CoA
  • Science - Succinate

  • H2O is produced at steps 1 and 8, so remember 18 for water.
  • CO2 is produced at steps 4 and 5 which are COnsecutive
  • NAD+ is reduced at steps 3, 5 and 9: all odd numbers
  • FAD+ is reduced at step 7, and 7 looks like a backwards F. Also an odd number, so all reductions are on odd numbers.
  • GTP is produced at step 6 and G looks like a 6
  • All reductions are catalysed by dehydrogenase enzymes named after the corresponding intermediate.
  • Just synthetases, synthases and the other ones to memorise now
