enzymology, a phosphopentomutase (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:alpha-D-ribose 1-phosphate D-ribose 5-phosphate
Hence, this enzyme has one substrate,
alpha-D-ribose 1-phosphate, and one product, D-ribose 5-phosphate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of
isomerases, specifically the phosphotransferases (phosphomutases), which transfer phosphate groups within a molecule. The systematic name of this enzyme class is alpha-D-ribose 1,5-phosphomutase. Other names in common use include phosphodeoxyribomutase, deoxyribose phosphomutase, deoxyribomutase, phosphoribomutase, alpha-D-glucose-1,6-bisphosphate:deoxy-D-ribose-1-phosphate, phosphotransferase, and D-ribose 1,5-phosphomutase. This enzyme participates in pentose phosphate pathwayand purine metabolism. It has 3 cofactors: D-ribose 1,5-bisphosphate, alpha-D-Glucose 1,6-bisphosphate, and 2-Deoxy-D-ribose 1,5-bisphosphate.
