ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Phosphorylase kinase.
Alternative Name(s)
Dephosphophosphorylase kinase.
Glycogen phosphorylase kinase.
Phosphorylase b kinase.
Phosphorylase B kinase.
Phosphorylase kinase (phosphorylating).
Reaction catalysed
2 ATP + phosphorylase b <=> 2 ADP + phosphorylase a
  • Requires calmodulin for activity.
  • The enzyme phosphorylates a specific serine residue in each of the subunits of the dimeric phosphorylase b.
  • For muscle phosphorylase but not liver phosphorylase, this is accompanied by a further dimerization to form a tetrameric phosphorylase.
  • The enzyme couples muscle contraction with energy production via glycogenolysis--glycolysis by catalyzing the Ca(2+)-dependent phosphorylation and activation of glycogen phosphorylase b.
  • The gamma subunit of the tetrameric alpha-beta-gamma-delta enzyme is the catalytic subunit.
  • Formerly EC
