AbstractMethanobacterium thermoautotrophicum assimilates CO2 via a novel pathway which involves the synthesis of acetyl CoA from 2 CO2. The pathway of carbohydrate synthesis in this autotroph starting from acetyl CoA and CO2 was studied using, (I) 14CO2 pulse-labeling, (II) [14C]pyruvate long term labelling, and (III) enzyme studies.(I)The distribution of radioactivity incorporated from 14CO2 by an exponentially growing culture during 2 s–120 s incubation periods has been analysed with respect… CONTINUE READING
