Cofactors of the phosphoroclastic reaction of Clostridium butyricum.


The degradation of pyruvate, in the presence of phosphate, to acetate, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen by cell-free extracts of Clostridium butylicum was described by Koepsell and Johnson (1). Later acetyl phosphate, the labile precursor of the acetate, was shown to be produced (2, 3), and phosphotransacetylase was shown to be present in the cell-free extracts… (More)
