EC 2.7.7.74

Names

Accepted name:
1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase
Other names:
CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase (bifunctional CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase (IPCT/DIPPS))
IPCT (bifunctional CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase (IPCT/DIPPS))
IPCT
L-myo-inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase
Systematic name:
CTP:1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase

Reaction

Comments:

In many organisms this activity is catalysed by a bifunctional enzyme. The cytidylyltransferase domain of the bifunctional EC 2.7.7.74/EC 2.7.8.34 (CTP:inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase/CDP-inositol:inositol-1-phosphate transferase) is absolutely specific for CTP and 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate. The enzyme is involved in biosynthesis of bis(1L-myo-inositol) 1,3'-phosphate, a widespread organic solute in microorganisms adapted to hot environments.
