Benzoate was activated by a benzoate-CoA ligase reaction, forming AMP and pyrophosphate, which was subsequently cleaved by a membrane-bound proton-translocating pyrophosphatase. Glutaconyl-CoA (formed from hypothetical pimelyl-CoA and glutaryl-CoA intermediates) was decarboxylated to crotonyl-CoA by a sodium-ion-dependent membrane-bound glutaconyl-CoA decarboxylase, a biotin enzyme that could be inhibited by avidin. The overall energy budget of this fermentation could be balanced only if the dearomatizing reduction of benzoyl-CoA is assumed to produce cyclohexene carboxyl-CoA rather than cyclohexadiene carboxyl-CoA, although experimental evidence of this reaction is still insufficient. With this assumption, benzoate degradation by S. gentianae can be balanced to yield onethird to two-thirds of an ATP unit per benzoate degraded, in accordance with earlier measurements of whole-cell energetics.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/6564"/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Archives of Microbiology 171 (1999), pp. 331-337</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Schink, Bernhard</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:contributor>Schink, Bernhard</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>1999</dcterms:issued> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:27:26Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Schöcke, Ludger</dc:creator> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/6564/1/Energetics_and_biochemistry_of_fermentative_1999.pdf"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/6564/1/Energetics_and_biochemistry_of_fermentative_1999.pdf"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2011-03-24T17:27:26Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
