Phosphotransacetylase converts CoA to acetyl CoA. This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways:taurine and hypotaurine metabolism, pyruvate metabolism, and propanoate metabolism.
PTA, Native (Bacillus stearothermophilus)
Phosphotransacetylase, from Bacillus stearothermophilus, is used to convert CoA to acetyl CoA. Phosphotransacetylase (pta) is used to study transport systems for acetate. It is used to study metabolic pathways in various bacterium
