Reductive Citric Acid Cycle

The reductive citric acid cycle is the oxidative citric acid cycle run in reverse. It has been found in anaerobic and microaerobic bacteria. It was proposed in 1966 by Evans, Buchanan and Arnon who were working with the anoxygenic photosynthetic green sulfur bacterium that they called Chlorobium thiosulfatophilum. The reductive citric acid cycle is sometimes called the Arnon-Buchanan cycle.

Famous quotes containing the words cycle and/or reductive:

    Oh, life is a glorious cycle of song,
    A medley of extemporanea;
    And love is a thing that can never go wrong;
    And I am Marie of Roumania.
    Dorothy Parker (1893–1967)

    In the haunted house no quarter is given: in that respect
    It’s very much business as usual. The reductive principle
    Is no longer there, or isn’t enforced as much as before.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
