Citric acid, cis-aconitic acid (cis-aconitate) and iso-citric acid (iso-citrate) are three tri-carboxylic acids of TCA cycle.Answered by Bharat Biswas, 20 Jul '09 08:03 am
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) cycleAnswered by Naresh Swain, 19 Jul '09 11:44 pm
