  • Many bacteria and other organisms form acetate during fermentation. Forming acetate from high energy-precursors (acetyl-CoA or acetyl phosphate) is one of the few ways that fermentative bacteria generate ATP. Here we found a biochemical pathway for forming acetate and synthesizing ATP that was unknown in bacteria. We found the bacterium Cutibacterium granulosum formed acetate during fermentation of glucose. With enzymatic assays, we showed it formed acetate u...
