Glyoxylate cycle: Reactions, enzymes and  regulation

  • Operated in plants (glyoxysome), invertebrates, algae, yeast and bacteria .​​
  • Glyoxylate cycle converts 2 molecules of acetyl-CoA into one molecule of succinate.
  • Succinate then transported to mitochondria, where citric acid cycle enzymes transform it to malate.
  • Malate then converted into oxaloacetate in cytoplasm which further transformed into glucose by gluconeogenesis.
