In the Krebs cycle, acetyl-CoA helps to convert proteins, lipids and carbohydrates into simpler substances in humans. These enzymes take part in biological chemical reactions.

Explanation

There are some enzymes present in human body which help in the digestion of the carbohydrates and fats.

The metabolism involves the breaking of the food into simpler substances or components. Further, they take part in biological reactions and produce energy in the form of ATP. This energy is required by the cells to perform various functions in the body.

Carbohydrates and fats are the main sources of energy. The carbohydrates and fats are converted into glucose and fatty acids. Further, the conversion of glucose takes place which results in the formation of pyruvic acid...
