The pentose phosphate pathway has been studied in Trypanosoma cruzi, Clone CL Brener. Functioning of the pathway was demonstrated in epimastigotes by measuring the evolution of (14)CO(2) from [1-(14)C] or [6-(14)C]D-glucose. Glucose consumption through the PPP increased from 9.9% to 20.4% in the presence of methylene blue, which mimics oxidative stress. All… CONTINUE READING
