The oxidative Weimberg pathway for the five-step pentose degradation to α ketoglutarate from Caulobacter crescentus is a key route for sustainable bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass to added-value products and biofuels. Here, we developed a novel iterative approach involving initial rate kinetics, progress curves, and enzyme cascades, with high resolution NMR analysis of intermediate dynamics, and multiple cycles of kinetic modelling analyses to construct and validate a quantitative model for the Weimberg pathway.
