IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 1-phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 5-kinase

Reaction: ATP + 1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol 4-phosphate = ADP + 1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol 4,5-bisphosphate

Other name(s): diphosphoinositide kinase; PIP kinase; phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate kinase; phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 5-kinase; type I PIP kinase

Systematic name: ATP:1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol-4-phosphate 5-phosphotransferase

Comments: This enzyme can also phosphorylate PtdIns3P in the 4-position, and PtdIns, PtdIns3P and PtdIns(3,4)P2 in the 5-position in vitro, but to a lesser extent. The last of these reactions occurs in vivo and is physiologically relevant. Three different isoforms are known.
