Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0019243 - methylglyoxal catabolic process to D-lactate via S-lactoyl-glutathione

Synonyms: methylglyoxal catabolism to D-lactate via S-lactoyl-glutathione

Definition: The chemical reactions and pathways resulting in the breakdown of methylglyoxal, CH3-CO-CHO, into D-lactate via the intermediate S-lactoyl-glutathione. Glutathione is used in the first step of the pathway and then regenerated in the second step.
