Enzyme Commission Primary Name: fructose-bisphosphate aldolase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: aldolase, fructose-1,6-bisphosphate triosephosphate-lyase, fructose diphosphate aldolase, diphosphofructose aldolase, fructose 1,6-diphosphate aldolase, ketose 1-phosphate aldolase, phosphofructoaldolase, zymohexase, fructoaldolase, fructose 1-phosphate aldolase, fructose 1-monophosphate aldolase, 1,6-Diphosphofructose aldolase, SMALDO, D-fructose-1,6-bisphosphate D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate-lyase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): 8.226501Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Also acts on (3S,4R)-ketose 1-phosphates. The yeast and bacterial enzymes are zinc proteins. The enzymes increase electron-attraction by the carbonyl group, some (Class I) forming a protonated imine with it, others (Class II), mainly of microbial origin, polarizing it with a metal ion, e.g. zinc.
