SUMMARY:A number of excellent and comprehensive reviews on various aspects of pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex have been written recently. The purpose of the present review is to summarize briefly the reaction mechanism and the regulation of this enzyme. Emphasis is put on the most recent literature not covered by previous reviews. Particular attention is also paid to the regulation of brain pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex, since a number of patients with neuromuscular diseases, such as Friedreich's ataxia, show a decreased rate of pyruvate oxidation.
