A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate 4-phosphatase.
Alternative Name(s)
PtdIns-4,5-P(2) 4-phosphatase.
Reaction catalysed
1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol 4,5-bisphosphate + H(2)O <=> 1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol 5-phosphate + phosphate
  • Two pathways exist in mammalian cells to degrade 1-phosphatidyl- 1D-myo-inositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P(2)).
  • One is catalyzed by this enzyme and the other by EC, where the product is PtdIns4P.
  • The enzyme from human is specific for PtdIns(4,5)P(2) as substrate, as it cannot use PtdIns(3,4,5)P(3), PtdIns(3,4)P(2), PtdIns(3,5)P(2), PtdIns5P, PtdIns4P or PtdIns3P.
  • In humans, the enzyme is localized to late endosomal/lysosomal membranes.
  • It can control nuclear levels of PtdIns5P and thereby control p53- dependent apoptosis.
  • Formerly EC 3.1.3.n3.
