Biochemical and genetic characterization of an auxotroph of Bacillus subtilis altered in the Acyl-CoA:acyl-carrier-protein transacylase.

Abstract

We have analyzed a mutation of Bacillus subtilis (bfmB) that results in an acyl-CoA:acyl-carrier-protein transacylase with low affinity for branched acyl-CoA substrates; it maps in the acf-hisH region of the chromosome. The aceA mutation, present in the parent of the bfmB mutant, causes a deficiency in pyruvate dehydrogenase and maps in the pycA-pyrA region… (More)
