Annotation
do not confuse with PHOSPHOENOLPYRUVATE CARBOXYKINASE (ATP) or PHOSPHOENOLPYRUVATE CARBOXYKINASE (GTP)
Scope Note
An enzyme with high affinity for carbon dioxide. It catalyzes irreversibly the formation of oxaloacetate from phosphoenolpyruvate and carbon dioxide. This fixation of carbon dioxide in several bacteria and some plants is the first step in the biosynthesis of glucose. EC 4.1.1.31.
