I have come across some articles stating that the glyoxylate cycle in
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii occurs in the cytoplasm. However, I have not
been able to track down any original reference with experimental data.
Does anyone know if this (glyoxylat cycle in the cytoplasm) has been
experimentally determined? If so, where can I find the original
article? Also, if this is true, does it mean that the enzymes in the
Chlamydomonas glyoxylate cycle do not need additional targeting signals as
oppose to enzymes of higher plants which need targeting signals for
Any response to the above questions would be greatly appreciated.
