Accepted name: glycerate 2-kinase
Reaction: ATP + D-glycerate = ADP + 2-phospho-D-glycerate
For diagram of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway, click here
Other name(s): D-glycerate-2-kinase; glycerate kinase (2-phosphoglycerate forming); ATP:(R)-glycerate 2-phosphotransferase
Systematic name: ATP:D-glycerate 2-phosphotransferase
Comments: A key enzyme in the nonphosphorylative Entner-Doudoroff pathway in archaea [1,2]. In the bacterium Hyphomicrobium methylovorum GM2 the enzyme is involved in formaldehyde assimilation I (serine pathway) [5]. In Escherichia coli the enzyme is involved in D-glucarate/D-galactarate degradation [6]. The enzyme requires a divalent metal ion [1].
