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


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] or phosphotransacetylase [acetyl-CoA: orthophosphate acetyltransferase; EC… (More)
