The phosphorylation of glucose by polyphosphate glucokinase with both long- and short-chain polyphosphates has been shown to occur by either a nonprocessive mechanism, i.e. with repeated association and dissociation of the polyphosphate from the enzyme after each phosphorylation or by a quasiprocessive mechanism in which several phosphorylations occur prior to the release of polyphosphate and the reassociation with the enzyme. In contrast, the phosphorylation of ADP to ATP by polyphosphate… CONTINUE READING
