EC Number: 18.104.22.168
In Pathway: galactose degradation I (Leloir pathway)
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: galactokinase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: galactokinase (phosphorylating), ATP:D-galactose-1-phosphotransferase
Part of galactose, galactoside and glucose catabolism.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
This reaction is different from the one specified by the EC, by having α-D-galactose as a substrate (the official reaction specifies D-galactose). It has been modified since the original literature suggests that the former is the actual substrate for the enzyme .
