Cross-Species Comparison: glycerol degradation I

Note: In addition to reflecting differences in biology of different organisms, these statistics will reflect differences in the levels of curation, data availability, and completeness of the PGDBs for these organisms.

This table compares a single pathway across the requested organism databases. The Evidence Glyph is a cartoon of the pathway diagram showing which steps have identified enzymes, which are pathway holes, and which steps are unique to this pathway (a color key is included at the bottom of this page). For each reaction step, we list the identified enzymes and genes. A pathway may not be present in an organism database even if enzymes have been identified for one or more of its reactions, and we indicate if this is the case. Finally, for organism databases in which operons exist (i.e. prokaryotes) and have been defined, we include diagrams showing all the operons that contain the genes for this pathway. Genes that are actually involved in the pathway are colored dark purple, whereas other genes in the same operon which are not involved in the pathway are shaded a lighter color. Clicking on an organism name will take you to the display page for the pathway in that organism database.
