Figure 1

Simplified representation of the central carbon metabolism of E. coli . (A) glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, (B) anaplerotic reactions, (C) acetate formation and assimilation, (D) TCA cycle, (E) Glyoxylate shunt, (F) PP pathway. The dotted line arrow from oxaloacetate to pyruvate indicates the anaplerotic reaction catalysed by pyruvate carboxylase. The broken line arrows indicate the removal of metabolites.
