|Date of Defense
The genes encoding the acetate kinase and phosphotransacetylase enzymes
from Methanosarcina thermophila were isolated from a genomic library on a
fifteen kilobase fragment The genes are located adjacent to one another, with
the phosphotransacetylase gene (pta) directly upstream of the acetate kinase gene
(ack). The two genes were sequenced, along with a third Open Reading Frame
(designated orfY). The orfY gene appears to encode a novel protein whose
physiological function has yet to be determined.
