Accepted name: 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase
Reaction: CTP + 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate = diphosphate + CDP-1L-myo-inositol

Glossary: 1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate = 1D-myo-inositol 3-phosphate
Other name(s): 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)); L-myo-inositol-1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase
Systematic name: CTP:1L-myo-inositol 1-phosphate cytidylyltransferase
Comments: In many organisms this activity is catalysed by a bifunctional enzyme. The cytidylyltransferase domain of the bifunctional EC (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.
