Enzymes of glucose and methanol metabolism in the actinomycete Amycolatopsis methanolica.


The actinomycete Amycolatopsis methanolica was found to employ the normal bacterial set of glycolytic and pentose phosphate pathway enzymes, except for the presence of a PPi-dependent phosphofructokinase (PPi-PFK) and a 3-phosphoglycerate mutase that is stimulated by 2,3-bisphosphoglycerate. Screening of a number of actinomycetes revealed PPi-PFK activity… (More)
