Abstract

The predicted amino acid sequence of the product of the acetate-inducible gene of , previously of unknown function, has close homology to the recently published sequence of acetyl-CoA hydrolase. An mutant strain, previously characterized as acetate non-utilizing, shows strong growth-inhibition by acetate, but will use it as carbon source at low concentrations. The mutant was shown to be deficient in acetyl-CoA hydrolase and to accumulate acetyl-CoA when supplied with acetate. As in , the enzyme is acetate-inducible.
