    Thumbnail: Due to its role in the pentose phosphate pathway and the Calvin cycle, D-Ribose-5-phosphate isomerase is highly conserved in most organisms, such as bacteria, plants, and animals. It plays an essential role in the metabolism of plants and animals, as it is involved in the Calvin cycle which takes place in plants, and the pentose phosphate pathway which takes place in plants as well as animals.
