- dTTP + alpha-D-glucose 1-phosphate diphosphate + dTDP-glucose
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, to be specific, those transferring phosphorus-containing nucleotide groups (nucleotidyltransferases). This enzyme participates in 3 metabolic pathways: nucleotide sugars metabolism, streptomycin biosynthesis, and polyketide sugar unit biosynthesis.
The systematic name of this enzyme class is dTTP:alpha-D-glucose-1-phosphate thymidylyltransferase. Other names in common use include:
- glucose 1-phosphate thymidylyltransferase,
- dTDP-glucose synthase, dTDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase,
- thymidine diphosphoglucose pyrophosphorylase,
- thymidine diphosphate glucose pyrophosphorylase, and
- TDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase.
As of late 2007, 19 structures have been solved for this class of enzymes, with PDB accession codes 1FXO, 1FZW, 1G0R, 1G1L, 1G23, 1G2V, 1G3L, 1H5R, 1H5S, 1H5T, 1IIM, 1IIN, 1LVW, 1MC3, 1MP3, 1MP4, 1MP5, 2GGO, and 2GGQ.
