triosephosphate isomerase


Also found in: Wikipedia.

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.

To our knowledge, only a limited number of enzymes with such catalytic carboxyl group(s) are known so far in other groups of enzymes than hydrolases and transferases, such as triosephosphate isomerase (catalytic Glu), (201) glucosamine 6-phosphate isomerase (or deaminase) (catalytic Asp), (202) phosphofructokinase (catalytic Asp) 203) etc.

As shown in the histogram of Figure 2, one protein from the SwissProt protein database matches the peptides of the mgf file with higher confidence than any other--in this case, triosephosphate isomerase (TPI) has a protein score of 253, well above the probability cut-off (green shaded box) of 28 (P < 0.
