Anaplerotic Reactions Replinish TCA Intermediates

Anaplerotic reactions are reactions that replinish intermediates in a biochemical cycle. In the TCA cycle, Anaplerotic reactions replenish intermediates such as Succinyl CoA, Oxaloacetate, Malate, and others.

-This video explores the difference between Anaplerotic reactions and Cataplerotic Reations. Pyruvate is explored in three anaplerotic reactions producing either Acetyl CoA, Oxaloacetate, and Alpha-Ketogluterate
Odd Chain Fatty Acids can contribute to Anaplerotic reactions such as Triheptanoin conversion to Succinate.
