General Information
disruption of the gene acoA encoding subunit E1alpha results in strains impaired in expression of dephosphate-dependent E1 activity, to remove acetoin from the medium and to grow with acetoin as sole carbon source
physiological function
the acetoin dehydrogenase enzyme system is responsible for R-acetoin dissimilation. Mutants lose the ability to grow on acetoin as the sole carbon source, and the acetoin accumulated cannot be dissimilated. In the presence of another carbon source, the acetoin accumulated in broth of acetoin dehydrogenase mutants is converted to 2,3-butanediol
