Condensed overview of the central metabolism in L. reuteri. Dotted purple arrows indicate pathways for which genes or homologs are present but likely not active in L. reuteri JCM 1112. Dotted black arrows indicate multiple enzymatic steps. Yellow background circle indicates microcompartment; blue background indicates the EMP pathway; grey background indicates the phosphoketolase pathway. FK: fructokinase/glucokinase; PGI: glucose-6-phosphate isomerase; PFK: phosphofructokinase; FBA: fructose-bis-phosphate aldolase; TPI: triosephosphate isomerase; PGM: phosphoglucomutase; RPE + PK: ribulose epimerase + phosphoketolase; GDH: glycerol dehydratase I; PTA: phosphotransacetylase; ACK: acetate kinase; ADHE: bifunctional aldehyde-alcohol dehydrogenase; PYK: pyruvate kinase; LDH: lactate dehydrogenase
