IUBMB Comments

This enzyme replenishes oxaloacetate in the tricarboxylic acid cycle when operating in the reverse direction. The reaction proceeds in two steps: formation of carboxyphosphate and the enolate form of pyruvate, followed by carboxylation of the enolate and release of phosphate.

The expected taxonomic range for this enzyme is: Bacteria, Eukaryota, Archaea

Synonyms
pepck, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, pepc, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase, pepcase, pep carboxylase, c4 pepc, pepc1, phosphoenol pyruvate carboxylase, pep-carboxylase, more
