  journal={Archives of Microbiology},
The autotrophic CO2 fixation pathway inAcidianus brierleyi, a facultatively anaerobic thermoacidophilic archaebacterium, was investigated by measuring enzymatic activities from autotrophic, mixotrophic, and heterotrophic cultures. Contrary to the published report that the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle operates inA. brierleyi, the enzymatic activity of ATP:citrate lyase, the key enzyme of the cycle, was not detected. Instead, activities of acetyl-CoA carboxylase and propionyl-CoA… CONTINUE READING
