Nameacetate production from acetylphosphate
DescriptionAcetate may be generated acetyl phosphate by hydrolysis (, acylphosphatase) or by a reversible ATP-dependent reaction (, ATP:acetate phosphohydrolase). The literature also refers to a reversible pyrophophate-dependent reaction in Entamoeba histolytica although the sequence of the enzyme responsible is not yet known.
