MetaCyc Enzyme: hexulose-6-phosphate synthase

Gene: rmpA Accession Number: G-3185 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: HPS, 3-hexulose-6-phosphate synthase

Species: Mycobacterium gastri MN19

Subunit composition of hexulose-6-phosphate synthase = [RmpA]2
         hexulose-6-phosphate synthase subunit = RmpA

Summary:
Hexulose-6-phosphate synthase (HPS) is one of the key enzymes of the ribulose-5-monophosphate (RuMP) pathway for formaldehyde assimilation. It is also a key enzyme of the related cyclic formaldehyde oxidation (dissimilatory) pathway which is often found in the organisms that poccess the RuMP cycle.
The gene encoding 3-hexulose-6-phosphate synthase is usually present in the same operon as the gene encoding 6-phospho-3-hexuloisomerase, the other key enzyme of the RuMP pathway.
