Summaries for PFKP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PFKP Gene

  • The PFKP gene encodes the platelet isoform of phosphofructokinase (PFK) (ATP:D-fructose-6-phosphate-1-phosphotransferase, EC PFK catalyzes the irreversible conversion of fructose-6-phosphate to fructose-1,6-bisphosphate and is a key regulatory enzyme in glycolysis. The PFKP gene, which maps to chromosome 10p, is also expressed in fibroblasts. See also the muscle (PFKM; MIM 610681) and liver (PFKL; MIM 171860) isoforms of phosphofructokinase, which map to chromosomes 12q13 and 21q22, respectively. Vora (1981) [PubMed 6451249] determined that full tetrameric phophofructokinase enzyme expressed in platelets can be composed of subunits P4, P3L, and P2L2.[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PFKP Gene

PFKP (Phosphofructokinase, Platelet) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PFKP include Glycogen Storage Disease Vii. Among its related pathways are AMPK Enzyme Complex Pathway and Central carbon metabolism in cancer. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and 6-phosphofructokinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PFKM.
