Related to enolase: glycolysis

enolase

 [e´no-lās]
an enzyme in glycolytic systems that changes phosphoglyceric acid into phosphopyruvic acid.

e·no·lase

(ē'nol-ās),
An enzyme catalyzing the reversible dehydration of 2-phospho-d-glycerate to phosphoenolpyruvate and water; a step in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; several isozymes exist; requires magnesium ion and is inhibited by F-.

enolase

(ē′nə-lās′, -lāz′)
n.
An enzyme that catalyzes one of the steps of glycolysis.

e·no·lase

(ē'nō-lās)
An enzyme catalyzing the reversible dehydration of 2-phospho-d-glycerate to phosphoenolpyruvate and water; a step in both glycolysis and gluconeogenesis; several isozymes exist; requires magnesium ion and is inhibited by F-.

e·no·lase
