An alleged yeast polyphosphate kinase is actually diadenosine-5', 5"'-P1,P4-tetraphosphate alpha,beta-phosphorylase.

Polyphosphates are a major constituent of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A purification of the enzyme polyphosphate kinase (E.C. 2.7.4.1) from this organism has been reported (Felter, S., and Stahl, A.J.C. (1973) Biochimie (Paris) 55, 245-251). The assay for activity used in this purification was the production of 32P-labeled nucleotide, presumed to be… CONTINUE READING
