In Pathway: hydroxymethylpyrimidine salvage
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the direction in which it was curated.
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: hydroxymethylpyrimidine kinase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: hydroxymethylpyrimidine kinase (phosphorylating)
This reaction is involved in two biosynthetic pathways. It is one of the first steps in the biosynthesis of thiamine pyrophosphate and it is a reaction in the second part of the multistep synthesis of the pyrimidine moiety of thiamine.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
CTP, UTP and GTP can act as donors.
