Product namePEP-K, metabolic intermediate
DescriptionMetabolic intermediate involved in glycolysis and gluconeogeneis.
- 2-(Phosphonooxy)-2-propenoic acid monopotassium salt
- mono-Potassium phosphoenolpyruvate
- PEP monopotassium salt
- Phospho(enol)pyruvic acid monopotassium salt
Metabolic intermediate involved in glycolysis and gluconeogeneis. In glycolysis, phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) is metabolized by Pyruvate Kinase to yield pyruvate. In plants, it is involved in the formation of aromatic amino acids as well as in the carbon fixation pathway.
