glucose
pyruvate
citrate

    Interconvertible, like fructose to glucose to glycogen to fat back to glucose? What does pyruvate do?

  • biochemstry -

    pyruvate

  • biochemstry -

    Look at biochem testbook. "Acetal CoA is a cental character in the cellular metabolism... [through which] all the energy sources (fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) are interconvertible".

    Acetyl CoA is the correct answer.
