Some taxa known to possess this pathway include : Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
In Escherichia coli K-12, accumulation of D-sedoheptulose 7-phosphate, an intermediate of the pentose phosphate pathway (non-oxidative branch), leads to its utilization via the sedoheptulose bisphospate bypass pathway, described here. The pathway was discovered due to the unexpected near-wild type growth of a talA talB double null mutant on xylose [Nakahigashi09].
6-phosphofructokinase I is able to phosphorylate D-sedoheptulose 7-phosphate, producing D-sedoheptulose-1,7-bisphosphate, which is in turn split into glycerone phosphate and D-erythrose 4-phosphate by fructose bisphosphate aldolase [Nakahigashi09].
