DCA's principal site of action is the mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, a gatekeeper enzyme for regulating carbohydrate fuel metabolism in cells.
They created two new biosynthetic pathways--in effect transplanting four enzymes from bacteria and making new use of one of the plants' native enzymes, the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex, or PDC.
The pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDHc)  plays a pivotal role in energy metabolism: it catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate to acetyl-CoA, which is an important entry point for activated two-carbon acetyl units into the tricarboxylic acid cycle.
Enzyme inhibitory auto-antibodies to pyruvate dehydrogenase complex in primary biliary cirrhosis differ for mammalian, yeast and bacterial enzymes: implications for molecular mimicry.
The major mitochondrial antigen was identified as the 74-kDa E2 subunit of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (PDC), a member of the 2-oxoacid dehydrogenase complex family (4).
Investigations for defects in the electron transport chain and the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex (such as assay of electron transport chain function in muscle and pyruvate dehydrogenase activity in skin fibroblasts, and molecular biology studies of mitochondrial DNA) are invasive, time-consuming, and expensive.
