Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase (bifunctional CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase (IPCT/DIPPS)), IPCT (bifunctional CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase (IPCT/DIPPS)), L-myo-inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase

Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG in kcal/mol): -103.30353Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
In many organisms this activity is catalyzed by a bifunctional enzyme. The cytidylyltransferase domain of the bifunctional EC EC (CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase) is absolutely specific for CTP and 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate. The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of bis(1L-myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate, a widespread organic solute in microorganisms adapted to hot environments.
