Archaeoglobus fulgidus : bifubnctional CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase Inferred from experiment : ipct/dipps

In Pathway: di-myo-inositol phosphate biosynthesis

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

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): -103.30353 Inferred 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 (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.
