I just read the healthrising writeup on this. It said there is a study that found 10/11 pwme had citrate synthase deficiency. Does anyone know more about this?
Glucose eventually gets turned into acetyl CoA at the end of glycolysis. Acetyl CoA goes into the TCA cycle, where it reacts with oxaloacetate to form citrate. Citrate synthetase is the enzyme that catalyses that reaction.
When the talk is posted you should be able to see the slides to get the reference. I sure can't remember it off the top of my head. It should be posted to the same page.
