Fructose can serve as the sole source of carbon for E. coli. It is taken up via the fructose PTS permease, entering the cell in the form of fructose-1-phosphate. 1-phosphofructokinase subsequently phosphorylates the C-6 carbon to form fructose-1,6-bisphosphate, which can enter glycolysis I (from glucose 6-phosphate).
