In Pathways: lactose and galactose degradation I

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase catalyzes the ATP-dependent phosphorylation of D-tagatose-6-phosphate, a reaction in the tagatose 6-phosphate pathway of lactose and galactose degradation in Staphylococcus aureus [Bissett80].

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase was partially purified and characterized [Bissett80]. Data on kinetics, pH optimum, enzyme stability, and inducibility are presented and discussed [Bissett80].

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase can catalyze the phosphorylation of tagatose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate. Although the VMAX was the same, the apparent KM for tagatose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate was significantly different,16 microM and 150 mM, respectively [Bissett80].

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase can use the following phosphoryl donors (listed in decreasing rates at saturating concentrations): GTP, UTP, ITP, ATP, CTP, TTP. The rates and KM values are reported [Bissett80].

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase was induced by growth of Staphylococcus aureus cells on lactose and D-galactose [Bissett80].

D-Tagatose-6-phosphate kinase belongs to the carbohydrate pfkB kinase family (Swiss-Prot).
