Pyruvate Dehydrogenase Complex is a multi enzyme complex which converts pyruvate to acetyl-CoA and CO2. The complex consists of 3 enzymes;
- lipoamide reductase-transacetylase
- dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase
- pyruvate decarboxylase
The enzymes form a channel passing the reaction intermediates directly from one enzyme to the next.
