The Entner-Doudoroff (ED) pathway has recently been shown to play an important role in sugar catabolism for many organisms although very little information is available on the functionality of this pathway in Vibrio cholerae, the causative agent of cholera. In this study, activation of the genes edd and eda, encoding 6-phosphogluconate dehydratase and 2… CONTINUE READING
