In the present study, an inducible coenzyme B<sub>12</sub>‐dependent conversion of 2‐hydroxyisobutyryl‐CoA to 3‐hydroxybutyryl‐CoA was demonstrated in cell‐free extracts of acetone‐grown D. biacutus cells, together with a NAD<sup>+</sup>‐dependent oxidation of 3‐hydroxybutyryl‐CoA to acetoacetyl‐CoA. Genes encoding two mutase subunits and a dehydrogenase, which were found previously to be strongly induced during growth with acetone, were heterologously expressed in E. coli. The activities of the purified recombinant proteins matched with the inducible activities observed in cell‐free extracts of acetone‐grown D. biacutus: proteins (IMG locus tags) DebiaDRAFT_04573 and 04574 constituted a B<sub>12</sub>‐dependent 2‐hydroxyisobutyryl‐CoA/3‐hydroxybutyryl‐CoA mutase, and DebiaDRAFT_04571 was a 3‐hydroxybutyryl‐CoA dehydrogenase. Hence, these enzymes play key roles in the degradation of acetone and define an involvement of CoA esters in the pathway. Further, the involvement of 2‐hydroxyisobutyryl‐CoA strongly indicates that the carbonyl‐C<sub>2</sub> of acetone is added, most likely, to formyl‐CoA through a TDP‐dependent enzyme that is co‐induced in acetone‐grown cells and is encoded in the same gene cluster as the identified mutase and dehydrogenase. terms-of-use 2018-06 Schink, Bernhard Schleheck, David Two enzymes of the acetone degradation pathway of Desulfococcus biacutus : coenzyme B<sub>12</sub>‐dependent 2‐hydroxyisobutyryl‐CoA mutase and 3‐hydroxybutyryl‐CoA dehydrogenase Schneider, Fabian Frey, Jasmin Spiteller, Dieter
