This view shows enzymes only for those organisms listed below, in the list of taxa known to possess the pathway. If an enzyme name is shown in bold, there is experimental evidence for this enzymatic activity.
Synonyms: sucrose mobilization
|Superclasses:||Degradation/Utilization/Assimilation → Carbohydrates Degradation → Sugars Degradation → Sucrose Degradation|
In this pathway sucrose is cleaved by invertase ( EC 18.104.22.168, β-fructofuranosidase). This enzyme acts on β-D-fructofuranosides, releasing β-D-fructofuranose. When acting on sucrose, the products are β-D-fructofuranose and D-glucopyranose.
Invertases were studied extensively in yeast [Neumann67, BACON54], from which the enzyme was originally isolated in 1860 [Berthelot60]. However, invertase activity is very common in plants and other organisms.
The plant invertase activity is found in the cytoplasm, vacuole, and apoplast [Dey97a].
The hexoses generated by invertase are used to meet the energy and substrate requirements of the organism for growth, storage, or energy production.
Variants: sucrose degradation I (sucrose phosphotransferase), sucrose degradation II (sucrose synthase), sucrose degradation IV (sucrose phosphorylase), sucrose degradation V (sucrose α-glucosidase), sucrose degradation VII (sucrose 3-dehydrogenase), superpathway of anaerobic sucrose degradation
