Enzyme Commission Primary Name: phosphoenolpyruvate—protein phosphotransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: phosphoenolpyruvate sugar phosphotransferase enzyme I, phosphopyruvate-protein factor phosphotransferase, phosphopyruvate-protein phosphotransferase, sugar-PEP phosphotransferase enzyme I, phosphoenolpyruvate:protein-L-histidine N-pros-phosphotransferase

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Enzyme I of the phosphotransferase system (cf. EC, protein-Nπ-phosphohistidine—sugar phosphotransferase). Acts only on histidine residues in specific phosphocarrier proteins of low molecular mass (9.5 kDa) involved in bacterial sugar transport. A similar reaction, where the protein is the enzyme EC, pyruvate, water dikinase, is part of the mechanism of that enzyme.
