New insights into the mechanism of the hub of metabolism, the citric acid cycle, have been obtained by scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics and the Institute of Microbiology of the J. W. Goethe University, both located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Using X-ray crystallography, they have determined the three-dimensional structure of an enzyme related to succinate dehydrogenase, a key enzyme in the citric acid cycle.
