FunFam 35573: D-xylulose 5-phosphate/D-fructose 6-phosphate phos...

There are 4 EC terms in this cluster

Please note: EC annotations are assigned to the full protein sequence rather than individual protein domains. Since a given protein can contain multiple domains, it is possible that some of the annotations below come from additional domains that occur in the same protein, but have been classified elsewhere in CATH.

Note: The search results have been sorted with the annotations that are found most frequently at the top of the list. The results can be filtered by typing text into the search box at the top of the table.

EC Term Annotations Evidence
Phosphoketolase. [EC:]
D-xylulose 5-phosphate + phosphate = acetyl phosphate + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + H(2)O.

    Fructose-6-phosphate phosphoketolase. [EC:]
    D-fructose 6-phosphate + phosphate = acetyl phosphate + D-erythrose 4-phosphate + H(2)O.
    • Also acts on D-xylulose 5-phosphate.

    (342 more...)
    Acetate kinase. [EC:]
    ATP + acetate = ADP + acetyl phosphate.
    • While purified enzyme from Escherichia coli is specific for acetate, others have found that the enzyme can also use propanoate as a substrate, but more slowly.
    • Acetate can be converted into the key metabolic intermediate acetyl- CoA by coupling acetate kinase with EC
    • Both this enzyme and EC play important roles in the production of propanoate.

    Transketolase. [EC:]
    Sedoheptulose 7-phosphate + D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate = D-ribose 5-phosphate + D-xylulose 5-phosphate.
    • Wide specificity for both reactants, e.g. converts hydroxypyruvate and R-CHO into CO(2) and R-CHOH-CO-CH(2)OH.
    • The enzyme from the bacterium Alcaligenes faecalis shows high activity with D-erythrose 4-phosphate as acceptor.
