Why we it is converted by PDH?

Acetyl coA when it into TCA cycle it convert to CO2 the gluconeogenesis pathway need OAA or pyruvate.

But Acetyl coA is converted to oxaloacetate then phosphoenolpyruvate and then we go ahead to glucose.

Then correct answer is as it appears that activity of pyruvate dehydrogenase, can not be reverse.
