Citric acid, cis-aconitic acid (cis-aconitate) and iso-citric acid (iso-citrate) are three tri-carboxylic acids of TCA cycle.

Citric acid is a so-called tricarboxylic acid, containing three carboxyl groups (COOH). Hence the Krebs cycle is sometimes referred to as the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle
