spp - Sucrose-Phosphate Phosphatase gene from Synechocystis PCC 6803
Usage and Biology
spp codes for Sucrose-phosphate phosphatase (SPP), an enzyme involved in the sucrose biosynthesis pathway in the cyanobacteria Synechocystis PCC 6803.
Fructose-6-phosphate is converted into sucrose-6-phosphate by the action of sucrose-phosphate synthase (SPS). Sucrose-phosphate phosphatase (SPP) then catalyses the conversion of sucrose-6-phosphate into sucrose .
In Synechocystis PCC 6803, SPS and SPP are coded for by two separate genes, sps, and spp .
In S. elongatus, SPS and SPP are natively found as a fused protein, and this fusion protein is coded for by a single sps gene .
