MetaCyc Enzyme: trehalose-6-phosphate phosphatase

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

This is probably a specific maltose-induced phosphatase from the ADP-α-D-glucose-dependent pathway trehalose biosynthesis II, not the TPS2 phosphatase from the UDP-α-D-glucose-dependent pathway trehalose biosynthesis I [Ferreira97].

Enzymatic reaction of: trehalose-6-phosphate phosphatase

Inferred from experiment

EC Number:

α,α-trehalose 6-phosphate + H2O → α,α-trehalose + phosphate

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.

The reaction is physiologically favored in the direction shown.

In Pathways: trehalose biosynthesis II
