ⓘ N-acetylneuraminate synthase

In enzymology, a N-acetylneuraminate synthase is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

phosphoenolpyruvate + N-acetyl-D-mannosamine + H 2 O ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } phosphate + N-acetylneuraminate

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are phosphoenolpyruvate, N-acetyl-D-mannosamine, and H 2 O, whereas its two products are phosphate and N-acetylneuraminate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring aryl or alkyl groups other than methyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is phosphoenolpyruvate:N-acetyl-D-mannosamine C-1-carboxyvinyltransferase phosphate-hydrolysing, 2-carboxy-2-oxoethyl-forming. Other names in common use include NANAcondensing enzyme, N-acetylneuraminate pyruvate-lyase pyruvate-phosphorylating, and NeuAc synthase. This enzyme participates in aminosugars metabolism.

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically.
