IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
phosphoramidate—hexose phosphotransferase
Other names:
phosphoramidate-hexose transphosphorylase
phosphoramidic-hexose transphosphorylase
phosphoramidate:hexose 1-phosphotransferase
Systematic name:
phosphoramidate:D-hexose 1-phosphotransferase



Activity is observed with several hexoses; of these glucose is the best substrate and the product from it is α-D-glucose 1-phosphate. The phosphoramidate donor can be replaced by N-phosphoglycine and by an N-phosphohistidine. May be identical with EC glucose-6-phosphatase.
