Figure 1

Predicted pathway for conversion of propionate to pyruvate by G. bemidjiensis. Eight steps are catalyzed by enzymes that have orthologs in both G. sulfurreducens and G. metallireducens (purple arrows). The only enzyme unique to G. bemidjiensis (pink arrow) is oxaloacetate decarboxylase, which simultaneously functions as propionyl-CoA carboxylase to carry out an earlier step of the cyclical pathway.
