Abstract

There are now abundant data indicating that uses fatty acids as a carbon source . A key enzyme in gluconeogenesis, missing in the original annotation of the genome, is fructose 1,6-bisphosphatase (FBPase; EC 3.1.3.11). The authors have shown that , a homologue, can complement mutants lacking FBPase. The protein encoded by was shown to have FBPase activity. was expressed at significant levels in , and may encode the major FBPase of this pathogen.
