- Two independent pathways in Escherichia coli convert acetate to acetyl CoA: reversal of acetate production by phosphotransacetylase and acetate kinase, and the acetyl-CoA synthetase (Acs) pathway that scavenges acetate. We investigated acs gene expression by using a cat transcriptional fusion. It was observed that acs expression varies depending on the carbon sources used and occurs in the stationary phase of growth even in the absence of acetate. Mutations in iclR for the repressor of the glyoxylate shunt and in rpoS for the stationary phase sigma factor reduced the consumption of acetate mediated by Acs, indicating that both are involved in acs regulation.
