Bioconversions of pyruvic acid in organism (Maleki et al. 2017).

Product Promoting enzyme Reaction
Phosphoenol pyruvate (PEP) PEP synthase Pyruvate + ATP + H2O → PEP + AMP + Pi
Acetaldehyde Pyruvate decarboxylase Pyruvate → CO2 + acetaldehyde
Acetate Pyruvate oxydase Pyruvate + ubiquinone → acetate + CO2 + ubiquinol
Oxaloacetate Pyruvate carboxylase Pyruvate + HCO3- + ATP → oxaloacetate + ADP
Acetyl CoA Pyruvate format lyase Pyruvate + CoA → Acetyl CoA + formate
