    B) activate the enzyme and thus slow the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle.

    C) inhibit the enzyme and thus increase the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle.

    D) activate the enzyme and increase the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle.

    E) inhibit the enzyme and thus increase the rate of glycolysis and the concentration of citrate.

    A) inhibit the enzyme and thus slow the rates of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle.
