Pyruvate kinase is an enzyme involved in glycolysis. It catalyzes the transfer of a phosphate group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to ADP, yielding one molecule of pyruvate and one molecule of ATP.
Pyruvate Kinase, Native (Bacillus stearothermophilus)
Pyruvate kinase from Bacillus stearothermophilus has been used in a study to assess evidence that the genes for phosphofructokinase and pyruvate kinase constitute an operon. 1 It has also been used in a study to investigate the importance of the Lys221 active site for pyruvate kinase activity.
