The eutD gene of Salmonella enterica encodes a protein with phosphotransacetylase enzyme activity.

The EutD protein of Salmonella enterica is homologous to the catalytic domain of the phosphotransacetylase (Pta) enzyme. The Pta-like activity level of the EutD enzyme compared favorably to that of other Pta enzymes. High-pressure liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry verified that acetyl-coenzyme A was the product of the reaction. The EutD protein… CONTINUE READING
