|Gene:||eutD||Accession Numbers: G7288 (MetaCyc), b2458, ECK2453|
Synonyms: ypfA, eutI
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Subunit composition of
phosphate acetyltransferase = [EutD]2
phosphate acetyltransferase monomer = EutD
The EutD protein has phosphotransacetylase activity. Expression of EutD - either from a plasmid or by inducing expression of the eut operon with ethanolamine and vitamin B12 - can rescue the growth defect of a pta acs mutant for growth on acetate as the sole source of carbon [Bologna10].
eutD shows differential codon adaptation, resulting in differential translation efficiency signatures, in thermophilic microbes. It was therefore predicted to play a role in the heat shock response. A eutD deletion mutant was shown to be more sensitive than wild-type specifically to heat shock, but not other stresses [Krisko14].

Enzymatic reaction of: phosphate acetyltransferase
EC Number: 188.8.131.52
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction of enzyme catalysis.
This reaction is reversible. [Bologna10]
In Pathways: superpathway of acetate utilization and formation , pyruvate fermentation to acetate IV , superpathway of N-acetylneuraminate degradation , superpathway of L-lysine degradation , superpathway of taurine degradation , acetate formation from acetyl-CoA I , mixed acid fermentation
The acetyl-phosphate forming reaction is catalyzed at nearly 4-times lower rates that the acetyl-CoA forming reaction; however, differences in Km result in similar catalytic efficiency in both directions [Bologna10].
pH(opt): 7.8 [Bologna10]
