About Pyruvate kinasePyruvate kinase is an enzyme from Transferase family (EC 184.108.40.206), with molecular weight within 50-60kDa range for monomer (biological unit usually tetramer), transfer of a phosphate group from phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) to ADP. The overall reaction can be written as Phosphoenolpyruvate + H+ + ADP -> Pyruvate + ATP
Systematic name for Pyruvate kinase is ATP:pyruvate 2-O-phosphotransferase, but in literature other names are also acceptable: pyruvic kinase; phosphoenol transphosphorylase; phosphoenolpyruvate kinase; pyruvate phosphotransferase; pyruvate kinase (phosphorylating); fluorokinase (phosphorylating); and fluorokinase.
