MetaCyc Enzyme: phosphate acetyltransferase

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

Synonyms: phosphotransacetylase

EC Number:

acetyl-CoA + phosphate <=> acetyl phosphate + coenzyme A

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

Imported from EcoCyc 02-Jun-2015 by Paley S , SRI International

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].

Activators (Unknown Mechanism): pyruvate [Bologna10]

Kinetic Parameters:

Km (μM)
coenzyme A
acetyl phosphate

pH(opt): 7.8 [Bologna10]
