NameAMP metabolism using type III Rubisco
DescriptionLee, et al. (PMID:17303759) have described an archaeal pathway for the conversion of AMP to 3-phosphoglycerate with the release of adenine. This pathway includes an AMP phosphorylase previously annotated as a probable thymidine phosphorylase, and a ribose-1,5-bisphosphate isomerase previously annotated as a translation initation factor.
