Official Full Name
phosphoglycerate kinase 2
Background
This gene is intronless, arose via retrotransposition of the phosphoglycerate kinase 1 gene, and is expressed specifically in the testis. Initially assumed to be a pseudogene, the encoded protein is actually a functional phosphoglycerate kinase that catalyzes the reversible conversion of 1,3-bisphosphoglycerate to 3-phosphoglycerate, during the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway of glycolysis, in the later stages of spermatogenesis.
Synonyms
PGK2; phosphoglycerate kinase 2; PGK 2; PGKPS; phosphoglycerate kinase, testis specific; phosphoglycerate kinase autosomal pseudogene; PGKB; dJ417L20.2; PGKB, PGKPS, dJ417L20.2
