Glyoxylate cycle and its regulation
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.
