IUBMB Comments
Specificity varies with the source and with the activating metal ion. The enzyme from some sources may be identical with EC 3.1.3.1 (alkaline phosphatase) or EC 3.1.3.9 (glucose-6-phosphatase). A form of this enzyme with a molecular mass of about 90 kDa is found in tonoplasts of plants and fungi, where it imports protons from the cytosol into the vacuolar lumen.
