The enzymic interconversion of acetate and acetyl-coenzyme A in Escherichia coli.

Abstract

Mutants of Escherichia coli K12 have been isolated that grow on media containing pyruvate of proline as sole carbon sources despite the presence of 10 or 50 mM-sodium fluoroacetate. Such mutants lack either acetate kinase [ATP: acetate phosphotransferase; EC 2.7.2.1] or phosphotransacetylase [acetyl-CoA: orthophosphate acetyltransferase; EC 2.3.1.8… (More)
