abstract
The glyoxylate cycle and the glycine cleavage system are part of conserved metabolic pathways involved in the chronic persistence of microorganisms in animal hosts. In the chromosome of the plant pathogen Rhodococcus; fascians, the vic locus has been identified as a region containing genes essential for persistence inside induced leafy galls. Sequence analysis showed that this 18-kb locus is syntenic with chromosomal regions of Mycobacterium species that encompass the 'persistence' loci of these mammalian pathogens. Hence, the ability to switch diet inside the host appears to be governed by 'persistence' enzymes that are conserved between pathogens of animals and plants.
