ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.7.74

Accepted Name
1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
IPCT.
L-myo-inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
CTP + 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate <=> diphosphate + CDP-1L-myo-inositol
Comment(s)
  • In many organisms this activity is catalyzed by a bifunctional enzyme.
  • The cytidylyltransferase domain of the bifunctional EC 2.7.7.74/EC 2.7.8.34 (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.
