I have come across a map and a part of it looks like this:

enter image description here

Now I have not been able to locate the reaction that converts alpha D-Glucose to Glucono-1,5-lactone but was successfully able to locate the reaction that converts alpha D-glucose Glucose to Glucose-6P. Since an arrow exist from alpha D-Glucose to Glucono-1,5-lactone, i am assuming that such a reaction exist. But could not locate it. I clicked on the arrow marked in blue in the picture, but could not find the desired reaction.(alpha D glucose and beta D glucose are different compounds) What is the reaction and how is it possible to find the reaction from the map? NB: The arrows are clickable so are the circles that denote the compound.

It was a simple search. You could have easily searched for glucose oxidase in KEGG, and you would have got this reaction.

In fact if you had clicked the link for glucunolactone's compound page, you would have got a list of many different reactions that convert glucose to glucunolactone.

You can even click the arrow which opens the KEGG-ORTHOLOGY page. You can find a field called RN in the section called "Other DBs". The links corresponding to this field would give you the exact reactions, that the pathway uses.
