    The Krebs cycle is the third step of cellular respiration.  it is also known as the citric acid cycle because as soon as acetyle coenzyme A enters the cycle it undergoes a chemical reaction that creates a citric acid molecule which then moves on to the next stage of reactions. Citric Acid contains 6 carbon molecules.  EXPLAIN how the 2 carbon sugar gets turned into a 6 carbon sugar again.
