The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Direct generic reaction:
allantoin[periplasmic space] → allantoin[cytosol] (no EC#)
E. coli is able to use S-allantoin as a sole nitrogen source under anaerobic conditions [Cusa99]
