About Triose-phosphate isomerase

Triose-phosphate isomerase is an enzyme from isomerases family (EC, with wide range of molecular weight, from 25 to 60kDa, that catalyze the reversible conversion between Glycerone-phosphate and D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. The overall reaction can be written as Dihydroxyacetone phosphate <=> D-glyceroaldehyde-3-phosphate.

Systematic name for Triose-phosphate isomerase is Triose-phosphate isomerase , but in literature can be used other names: triose phosphoisomerase, D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate ketol-isomeras, phosphotriose isomerase and triose phosphate mutase.
