    When chemical, transport, or mechanical work is doen by an organism, what happens to the heat generated?

    Succinate dehydrogenase catalyzes the conversion of succinate to fumarate. The reaction is inhibited by malonic acid, which resembles succinate but cannot be acted upon by succinate dehydrogenase. Increasing the ratio of succinate to malonic acid reduces the inhibitory effect of malonic acid. Based on this information, which of the following is correct?
    Succinate is the substrate and fumarate is the product.
