Accepted name: inositol-polyphosphate multikinase
Reaction: 2 ATP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate = 2 ADP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (overall reaction)
(1a) ATP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate = ADP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate
(1b) ATP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,4,5,6-tetrakisphosphate = ADP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate
Other name(s): IpK2; IP3/IP4 6-/3-kinase; IP3/IP4 dual-specificity 6-/3-kinase; IpmK; ArgRIII; AtIpk2α; AtIpk2β; inositol polyphosphate 6-/3-/5-kinase
Systematic name: ATP:1D-myo-inositol-1,4,5-trisphosphate 6-phosphotransferase
Comments: This enzyme also phosphorylates Ins(1,4,5)P3 to Ins(1,3,4,5)P4, Ins(1,3,4,5)P4 to Ins(1,3,4,5,6)P5, and Ins(1,3,4,5,6)P4 to Ins(PP)P4, isomer unknown. The enzyme from the plant Arabidopsis thaliana can also phosphorylate Ins(1,3,4,6)P4 and Ins(1,2,3,4,6)P5 at the D-5-position to produce 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate and inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6), respectively [3]. Yeast produce InsP6 from Ins(1,4,5)P3 by the actions of this enzyme and EC, inositol-pentakisphosphate 2-kinase [4].
