Keyword - Glyoxylate bypass (KW-0329)

Definition

Protein involved in the glyoxylate bypass, an alternate route in bacteria, plants, and fungi which bypasses the CO2-evolving steps of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, thus permiting the utilization of fatty acids or acetate, in the form of acetyl-CoA, as sole carbon source, particularly for the net biosynthesis of carbohydrate from fatty acids. The glyoxylate bypass is especially prominent in plant seeds.
