bifunctional enzyme

bifunctional enzyme

an enzyme containing two distinct catalytic capacities in the same polypeptide chain, e.g. phosphofructokinase II and fructose-2,6-bisphosphatase, which controls the concentration of fructose-2,6-bisP, the major allosteric regulator of glycolysis (+ve) and gluconeogenesis (−ve).
