Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase (FBP) is an important enzyme in glucose metabolism. It catalyzes the hydrolysis of fructose-1,6-bisphosphate to fructose-6-phosphate and inorganic phosphate. Fructose-6-phosphate kinase converts fructose-6-phosphate into fructose 1,6-bisphophate in the rate limiting step of the glycolysis cycle.
FBP, Native (Bacillus stearothermophilus)
Fructose-6-phosphate Kinase from Bacillus stearothermophilus was shown to interact with neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) causing a defect in glycolytic metabolism and increased fatigability in dystrophic muscle.
Bacillus stearothermophilus phosphofructokinase (BsPFK) is a homotetramer that is allosterically inhibited by phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP), which binds along one dimer-dimer interface.
