A multimer (24-mer) of this enzyme forms the core of the multienzyme complex, and binds tightly both EC, oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (succinyl-transferring) and EC, dihydrolipoyl dehydrogenase. The lipoyl group of this enzyme is reductively succinylated by EC, and the only observed direction catalysed by EC is that where this succinyl group is passed to coenzyme A.

Rate-limiting Description

"The measured rate of glutamine transport into the cells approximated to the metabolic flux and is suggested as a rate-limiting step." (8267405)

"The 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complex (OGHDC) (also known as the alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase complex) is a rate-limiting enzyme in the mitochondrial Krebs cycle." (15466852)
