Conserved Site

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (ATP), conserved site (IPR015994)

Short name: PEPCK_ATP_CS


Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (ATP) (EC: (PEPCK) [PMID: 1701430] catalyses the formation of phosphoenolpyruvate by decarboxylation of oxaloacetate while hydrolysing ATP, a rate limiting step in gluconeogenesis (the biosynthesis of glucose).

This conserved site represents a highly conserved region that contains four acidic residues and which is located in the central part of the enzyme. The beginning of this conserved site is located about 10 residues to the C terminus of an ATP-binding motif 'A' (P-loop) and is also part of the ATP-binding domain [PMID: 8609605].
