Isocitrate lyase and malate synthase are the key enzymes of glyoxylate cycle that represents the most important stage on the pathway of conversion of fatty acids to carbohydrates. Until now, induction of enzymes of this metabolic pathway was considered to take place only in cells of prokaryotes, plants, fungi, and nematodes in response to arising demands in carbohydrates. However, the isocitrate lyase activities have been detected in the liver of food-starved rats in our previous work and in…

Metabolism of methane and propane and the role of the glyoxylate bypass enzymes in Methylocella silvestris BL2
TLDR
Both the sMMO and the PrMO were found to be capable of oxidation of a wide range of aliphatic and aromatic compounds, including xenobiotics, suggesting a possible role in bioremediation.
Can sugars be produced from fatty acids? A test case for pathway analysis tools
TLDR
EMA of a set of enzymes corresponding to the Krebs cycle, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis supports the scientific evidence showing that there is no pathway capable of converting acetyl-CoA to glucose at steady state, and shows that, for metabolic pathway analysis, it is important to consider the topology and stoichiometry of metabolic systems.
Metabolism of antioxidants and nitrosothiols in barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) seeds during germination and seedling growth
TLDR
The antioxidant metabolism, metabolism of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, glyoxylate cycle and citric acid cycle were found to be more active during seed germination and early period of seedling growth.
Dissimilar properties of pyruvate kinase from rabbit and hare muscle
TLDR
It is suggested that in hare skeletal muscle PK is presented by its allosteric isoform which might be advantageous under extreme conditions of the hare’s habitation.
Exogenous gibberellin weakens lipid breakdown by increasing soluble sugars levels in early germination of zanthoxylum seeds.
TLDR
It is suggested that exogenous GA might enhance starch hydrolysis by promoting the catalytic activity of ɑ-amylase to supplement metabolically consumed soluble sugars, thus the increased sugars levels would help to inhibit the lipid breakdown to mitigate oxidative damages in the early germination of zanthoxylum seeds.
Organic Acid Metabolism and the Impact of Fermentation Practices on Wine Acidity: A Review
The conversion of grape sugar to ethanol and carbon dioxide is the primary biochemical reaction in alcoholic wine fermentation, but microbial interactions, as well as complex secondary metabolic
Mycobacterial Metabolic Pathways as Drug Targets: A Review
TLDR
Better understanding on the physiology of mycobacterium during the latent period will help in the identification of new drug targets that can act on the persistent myc Cobacterium, to develop new drug for persistent and latent infection of tuberculosis.
Determining the Impact of Industrial Wine Yeast Strains on Organic Acid Production Under White and Red Wine-like Fermentation Conditions
TLDR
The data clearly demonstrate that different strains have different acid consumption and production patterns, and this presents a first step towards enabling winemakers to appropriately select strains for acid management during fermentation.

Embryogenesis and the glyoxylate cycle
TLDR
Evidence is presented which supports the function of the glyoxylate cycle during embryogenesis of C. eleguns and is the first report implicating the occurrence of the Glyoxylates cycle in any embryonic animal tissue.
Determination of isocitrate lyase activity in polyacrylamide gels.
TLDR
A method is described which permits the localization of enzyme activity, directly, in polyacrylamide gels following electrophoresis, and is based upon the reaction of glyoxylic acid with a modified Schiff reagent to form a highly colored complex which is stable and quite specific under the experimental conditions described.

[Purification and properties of isocitrate lyase and malate synthase from fasting rat liver].
TLDR
Catalytic characteristics of isocitrate lyase indicate that the enzyme follows Michaelis-Menten kinetics, is competitively inhibited by glucose-I-phosphate and glucose-6- phosphate, and is activate by ADP; optimal pH is 7.4.
Glyoxylate cycle enzymes are present in liver peroxisomes of alloxan‐treated rats
TLDR
Key enzymes of the glyoxylate cycle, isocitrate lyase (ICL) and malate synthase (MS), have been detected in the liver of alloxan‐treated rats and displayed catalytic and regulatory properties similar to those of the enzyme isolated from the Liver of starved rats.
Evidence for the glyoxyiate cycle in human liver
TLDR
The enzymatic activities unique to the glyoxylate cycle of higher plants and certain lower invertebrates, isocitrate lyase and malate synthase, have been demonstrated in homogenates prepared from human liver, suggesting that the human liver may be capable of utilizing the carbon backbone of fatty acids for carbohydrate synthesis.
