triosephosphate isomerase

(redirected from Triose phosphate isomerase)

tri·ose·phos·phate i·som·er·ase

(trī'ōs-fos'fāt ī-som'ĕr-ās),
An isomerizing enzyme that catalyzes the reversible interconversion of d-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate, a reaction of importance in glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; a deficiency of this enzyme will result in hemolytic anemia and severe neurologic deficits.
