Oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (aka α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase) is an enzyme complex most commonly known for its role in the citric acid cycle.


Much like pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, this enzyme forms a complex composed of three components:

In fact, three classes of these multienzyme complexes have been characterized, one specific for pyruvate, a second specific for 2-oxoglutarate and a third specific branched-chain α-keto acids.


Nomenclature and classification

The official name of this enzyme is oxoglutarate dehydrogenase (OGDC) although it is also commonly known as α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (AKGDH).
*CAS: 9031-02-1

Metabolic pathways

This enzyme participates in three different pathways:
* Citric acid cycle (KEGG link: [http://www.genome.jp/kegg/pathway/map/map00720.html MAP00020] )
* Lysine degradation (KEGG link: [http://www.genome.jp/kegg/pathway/map/map00310.html MAP00310] )
* Tryptophan metabolism (KEGG link: [http://www.genome.jp/kegg/pathway/map/map00380.html MAP00380] )

Kinetic properties

The following values are from "Azotobacter vinelandii" (1):
*KM: 0.14 ± 0.04 mM
*Vmax : 9 ± 3 μmol.min-1.mg-1

Citric acid cycle


The reaction catalyzed by this enzyme in the citric acid cycle is::α-ketoglutarate + NAD+ + CoASuccinyl CoA + CO2 + NADH

This reaction proceeds in three steps:
* decarboxylation of α-ketoglutarate,
* reduction of NAD+ to NADH,
* and subsequent transfer to CoA, which forms the end product, succinyl CoA.

ΔG°' for this reaction is -7.2 kcal mol-1. The energy needed for this oxidation is conserved in the formation of a thioester bond of succinyl CoA.


Oxoglutarate dehydrogenase is a key control point in the citric acid cycle. It is inhibited by its products, succinyl CoA and NADH. A high energy charge in the cell will also be inhibitive.


2-Oxo-glutarate dehydrogrenase is an autoantigen recognized in primary biliary cirrhosis, a form of acute liver failure. These antibodies appear to recognize oxidized protein that has resulted from inflammatory immune responses. Some ofthese inflammatory responses are explained by gluten sensitivity.cite journal | author = Leung PS, Rossaro L, Davis PA, "et al" | title = Antimitochondrial antibodies in acute liver failure: Implications for primary biliary cirrhosis | journal = Hepatology| volume = 46| issue = | pages = 1436| year = 2007 | pmid = 17657817 | doi = 10.1002/hep.21828] Other mitochondrial autoantigensinclude pyruvate dehydrogenase and branched-chain alpha-keto acid dehydrogenase complex, which are antigens recognized by anti-mitochondrial antibodies.
