Putative model for starch, maltodextrin and maltose utilization in M. mycoides subsp. capri. The proteins involved are shown as circles with their relevant gene names or CDS numbers. Starch is hydrolyzed by amylases extracellularly to give maltodextrin and maltose. The resulting oligosaccharides are transported into the cytoplasm by a translocation complex. Further degradation of the sugar leads to glucose-6P which can enter glycolysis (adapted from ).
