EC 2.7.1.159

Accepted name: inositol-1,3,4-trisphosphate 5/6-kinase

Reaction: (1) ATP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate = ADP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrakisphosphate
(2) ATP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate = ADP + 1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4,6-tetrakisphosphate

Other name(s): Ins(1,3,4)P3 5/6-kinase; inositol trisphosphate 5/6-kinase

Systematic name: ATP:1D-myo-inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate 5-phosphotransferase

Comments: In humans, this enzyme, along with EC 2.7.1.127 (inositol-trisphosphate 3-kinase), EC 2.7.1.140 (inositol-tetrakisphosphate 5-kinase) and EC 2.7.1.158 (inositol pentakisphosphate 2-kinase) is involved in the production of inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6). InsP6 is involved in many cellular processes, including mRNA export from the nucleus [2]. Yeast do not have this enzyme, so produce InsP6 from Ins(1,4,5)P3 by the actions of EC 2.7.1.151 (inositol-polyphosphate multikinase) and EC 2.7.1.158 (inositol-pentakisphosphate 2-kinase) [2].
