This enzyme has assumed considerable importance in studies of enzymatic acetylations since the coupling of Reaction 1 with specific CoA-linked acetyl acceptor enzyme systems (1, 3, 8-10) permits the use of acetyl phosphate as a source of acetyl groups. In the present paper a partial purification of transacetylase from extracts of Clostridium kluyveri is described and some properties of the enzyme are presented.
