Official Full Name
The PFKP gene encodes the platelet isoform of phosphofructokinase (PFK);(ATP:D-fructose-6-phosphate-1-phosphotransferase, EC 188.8.131.52). 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.
