Glyoxylate Cycle of Plants and BacteriaSame as the Citric Acid Cycle except for reactions catalyzed by Isocitrate Lyase* and Malate Synthase*.
|Oxaloacetate + Acetyl CoA + H2O -> Citrate + CoA||Citrate Synthase|
|Citrate -> Isocitrate||Aconitase|
|Isocitrate -> Glyoxylate + Succinate||Isocitrate Lyase*|
|Glyoxylate + Acetyl CoA + H2O -> Malate + CoA||Malate Synthase*|
|Malate + NAD+ -> Oxaloacetate + NADH + H+||Malate Dehydrogenase|
