Figure 4.

Pathway of acetate oxidation to CO2 by D. kuznetsovii. Enzymes in this figure are in bold italic and their locus tags are included. Genes with the locus tags Desku_1488 and Desku_1490 putatively code for the small subunit and the large subunit of the iron-sulfur protein, respectively. This protein is involved in transferring the methyl from acetyl-CoA to tetrahydrofolate. Abbreviations: A-CoA S, acetyl-CoA synthetase; AcsA, carbon-monoxide dehydrogenase; AcsB, acetyl-CoA synthase; CFeSP, iron-sulfur protein; CH3, methyl; THF, tetrahydrofolate; MeTr, methyltransferase.
