Textbook Problem

REFLECT AND APPLY We have seen one of the four possible isomers of isocitrate, the one produced in the aconitase reaction. Draw the configurations of the other three.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The four possible isomers of isocitrate are known, one is produced in aconitase reaction and the configurations of the other three are to be shown.

Concept introduction:

 Isomers may be defined as the compounds that have the same molecular formula but different arrangement of atoms within the molecule.

 They may have different physical and chemical properties.

 Isocitrate is the anion of isocitric acid and works as a substrate in the citric acid cycle.

Explanation

In the first isomer, the two carboxylate groups are on opposite sides of adjacent carbon atoms and two hydrogen atoms on the next adjacent carbon atoms are also on the opposite sides. In the second isomer, the two carboxylate groups are on the right side of two adjacent carbons and two hydrogen atoms ...
