• The Krebs Cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle or tricarboxylic acid cycle, is a series of chemical reactions in all aerobic organisms (organisms that utilize oxygen in cellular respiration). It has many extremely important roles in the cell: it breaks down organic molecules to generate energy in the form of ATP (adenoside triphosphate) and provides the precursors to certain compounds, including amino acids. In eukaryotes, this process takes place within the mitochondria; in prokaryotes, it occurs in the cytoplasm. For a detailed look at the mechanism of the Krebs Cycle, see
