Term:allantoin assimilation pathway
go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0009442 term browser browse the term
Definition:The pathways by which allantoin is processed and converted to ureidoglycolate, and then into metabolically useful substrates. E. coli are able to utilize allantoin as a sole nitrogen source under anaerobic conditions by converting it to ureidoglycolate; this may be further metabolized to produce glyoxylate and thence 3-phosphoglycerate, or alternatively oxidized to oxolureate, which can converted into oxamate and carbamoylphosphate. This may then be further metabolized to CO2, NH4+ and ATP.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: allantoin catabolic process via ureidoglycolate;   allantoin catabolism via ureidoglycolate
 related_synonym: allantoin degradation pathway
 xref: MetaCyc:PWY0-41
