alanine degradation II (to D-lactate)

Supporting evidence for this pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana col: This pathway is on the list of Ubiquitous Plant Pathways, which includes pathways that are thought to be present in all or most land plants. [more info] Summary from MetaCyc: Some anaerobic bacteria can ferment amino acids. : TAX-28446 can ferment :L-ALPHA-ALANINE as shown in this pathway and the associated pathway link. The amino group of L-alanine is transferred to :2-KETOGLUTARATE, resulting in the formation of : PYRUVATE and : GLT. :2-KETOGLUTARATE is regenerated by NAD-dependent glutamate dehydrogenase, producing :AMMONIA. : PYRUVATE is reduced to :D-LACTATE ((R)-lactate), which is subsequently reduced to : PROPIONATE. Pyruvate can also be oxidized to : ACET and : CARBON-DIOXIDE . For information about the full pathway, see : PROPFERM-PWY.
