  • Function
    Glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a phosphoryl group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to ADP, generating ATP. Stimulates POU5F1-mediated transcriptional activation. Plays a general role in caspase independent cell death of tumor cells. The ratio between the highly active tetrameric form and nearly inactive dimeric form determines whether glucose carbons are channeled to biosynthetic processes or used for glycolytic ATP production. The transition between the 2 forms contributes to the control of glycolysis and is important for tumor cell proliferation and survival.
  • Tissue specificity
    Specifically expressed in proliferating cells, such as embryonic stem cells, embryonic carcinoma cells, as well as cancer cells.
  • Pathway
    Carbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 5/5.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the pyruvate kinase family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    ISGylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Translocates to the nucleus in response to different apoptotic stimuli. Nuclear translocation is sufficient to induce cell death that is caspase independent, isoform-specific and independent of its enzymatic actvity.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your enquiry. Unfortunately, we have not measured the activity of this enzyme in any assay and therefore I am unable to comment on whether the activity is maintained. Sorry, I couldn't be of more help. If you need to ask me any questi...
