Figure 3

Metabolic pathways of glucose metabolism in Clostridium tyrobutyricum . Enzymes are indicated by letters as follows: lactate dehydrogenase; pyruvate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase; NADH-ferredoxin oxidoreductase; NADPH-ferredoxin oxidoreductase; hydrogenase; phosphate acetyltransferase (phosphotransacetylase); acetate kinase; acetaldehyde dehydrogenase; ethanol dehydrogenase; thiolase (acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase); acetoacetyl-CoA; acetate/butyrate:CoA transferase; acetoacetate decarboxylase; 3-hydroxylbutyryl-CoA dehydrogenase; crotonase; butyryl-CoA dehydrogenase; phosphate butyltransferase (phosphobutyrylase); butyrate kinase.
