Mutations of genes for enzymes in the citric acid cycle can inhibit TET enzymes

TET enzymes, which demethylate DNA, are 2-oxoglutarate dependent enzymes. 2-oxoglutarate is synthesized by the citric acid cycle. Mutation of genes for enzymes in the citric acid cycle can inhibit TET enzymes, thereby dysregulating epigenetic mechanisms.
