IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: [pyruvate, water dikinase]-phosphate phosphotransferase

Reaction: [pyruvate, water dikinase] phosphate + phosphate = [pyruvate, water dikinase] + diphosphate

Other name(s): PSRP (ambiguous)

Systematic name: [pyruvate, water dikinase]-phosphate:phosphate phosphotransferase

Comments: The enzyme from the bacterium Escherichia coli is bifunctional and catalyses both the phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of EC, pyruvate, water dikinase. cf. EC, [pyruvate, water dikinase] kinase [1].
