Describe how citrate plays a role in regulatin the glycolytic and gluconeogenic pathways.
For citrate to be produced, the break down of glucose to pyruvate is required. Citrate is required to perform the TCA cylce, which produces GTP, FADH2 and NADH need in the ETC. However, this decreases glucose levels. If there is no avaliable supply of glucose, it need to be produced. The final product of the TCA cycle is OAA with can be used to produce glucose via gluconeogenesis.
