The Escherichia coli polyphosphate kinase (PPK) has been known to catalyze the reversible transfer of phosphate molecules between ATP and polyphosphate (poly(P)). It has also been found that the PPK catalyzes the kination of not only ADP but also other nucleoside diphosphates (NDPs) using poly(P) as a phosphate donor, yielding nucleotide triphosphates (NTPs). We used the PPK and poly(P) in place of pyruvate kinase and phosphoenol pyruvate for NTP regeneration followed by synthesis of sugar… CONTINUE READING
