    Professor Tate has a daughter who suffers from ME/CFS. As an award winning biomedical researcher, and close family member of a sufferer, Warren provides an invaluable perspective on the illness.

    Interesting research, this can be a potential discovery. It doesn't mention of which particular enzymes.

    @adreno it seems to be PDHC.

    From the transcript:
    That is, it's what we call a tricarboxylic acid cycle or the TCA cycle, intermediates seemed to be lower and the enzyme which transitions the energy producing system into the final stage, pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, seems to be defective.
