AccessionGenProp0272
Namepyruvate fermentation to acetoin
TypePATHWAY
DescriptionEnergy metabolism from sugars leads to flux through pyruvate. Pyruvate metabolism under limited oxygen may lead to fermentation with acidic end products. Pyruvate may be converted to acetoin in two steps, and in some species from acetoin to 2,3-butanediol, a neutral compound, so homeostasis can be maintained. This property describes the catabolic form of acetolactate synthase (distinguished from forms used in branched chain amino acid biosynthesis - see TIGR00118) and alpha-acetolactate decarboxylase.
