From: Bioinformatic evaluation of L-arginine catabolic pathways in 24 cyanobacteria and transcriptional analysis of genes encoding enzymes of L-arginine catabolism in the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803

Figure 1

Six major L-arginine-degrading pathways have been described in bacteria. The first enzymatic reaction of each pathway is shown. *Transfer of an amidino group to an acceptor such as glycine, L-lysine or inosamine phosphate. **Molecular oxygen or other electron acceptors such as NADP+ or quinones.
