- Studies on the structure, regulation and catalytic function of isocitrate lyase are reported. This catalyzes the first unique step i the glyoxylate cycle. In this cycle, lipids are converted to carbohydrates in a process which contributes to microbial growth on fatty aids and to the growth of oil-rich seedlings and animal embryos. These studies will provide basic information about isocitrate lyase. The function of this enzyme is vital to microbial growth (on fatty acids) and to the growth of varied plant seedlings and their subsequent utilization of solar energy.
