a 4-carbon DICARBOXYLIC ACID found in the KREBS CYCLE (see Fig. 292 ). It is formed from succinyl CoA by the ENZYME succinyl CoA synthetase. This is the only step in the cycle that directly yields a high energy bond. Succinate is subsequently oxidized to fumarate by the enzyme succinate DEHYDROGENASE.
