Table 1 The equation of different carbon sources producing acetyl-CoA

From: Metabolic engineering for efficient supply of acetyl-CoA from different carbon sources in Escherichia coli

Carbon source Equation Carbon recovery rate
Glucose C6H12O6 → 2 Acetyl-CoA + 2 CO2 + 4 NADH + 2 ATP 2/3
Acetate C2H4O2 + ATP → Acetyl-CoA 1
Palmitic acid C16H32O2 + 2 ATP → 8 Acetyl-CoA + 7 NADH + 7 FADH2 1
