All are correct statements about the reaction catalyzed by citrate synthase EXCEPT:
A. Citrate synthase is allosterically activated by ATP. B. The complete chemical equation is: Oxaloacetate¬†+¬†acetyl-CoA¬†+¬†H2O¬†->¬†citrate¬†+¬†CoA C. Citryl-CoA is formed as an intermediate. D. The mechanism involves attack of the carbanion of acetyl-CoA on the carbonyl carbon of oxaloacetate. E. The enzyme uses general base catalysis to generate the reactive species.
