Glyoxylate cycle in Chlamydomonas

I have come across some articles stating that the glyoxylate cycle in 
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii occurs in the cytoplasm.  However, I have not 
been able to track down any original reference with experimental data.  
Does anyone know if this (glyoxylat cycle in the cytoplasm) has been 
experimentally determined?  If so, where can I find the original 
article?  Also, if this is true, does it mean that the enzymes in the 
Chlamydomonas glyoxylate cycle do not need additional targeting signals as 
oppose to enzymes of higher plants which need targeting signals for 
glyoxysomal import?

Any response to the above questions would be greatly appreciated.
