ENZYME entry: EC 2.2.1.1

Accepted Name
transketolase
Alternative Name(s)
glycoaldehyde transferase
Reaction catalysed
D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate + D-sedoheptulose 7-phosphate = aldehydo-D-ribose 5-phosphate + D-xylulose 5-phosphate
Comment(s)
  • Wide specificity for both reactants, e.g. converts hydroxypyruvate and R-CHO into CO2 and R-CHOH-CO-CH2OH.
  • The enzyme from the bacterium Alcaligenes faecalis shows high activity with D-erythrose 4-phosphate as acceptor.
