Dear Orooba,
Thanks for asking!

Analeprotic reactions are specially observed in TCA(Kreb’s Cycle). The reaction in which the intermediates reform inorder to replenish the TCA cycle.

For e.g., During the initial phse of TCA cycle, Acetyl Co-A reacts with Oxalo-acetate (4 Carbon compound) in the presence of H2O and form Citrate. As we proceed to the TCA cycle reaction, we will observe that at the end of cycle, Oxaloacetate reforms to continue (replenish ) the TCA cycle.

Hope the answer of the question.
