ADP-specific Phosphofructokinase

In enzymology, an ADP-specific phosphofructokinase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

ADP + D-fructose 6-phosphate AMP + D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are ADP and D-fructose 6-phosphate, whereas its two products are AMP and D-fructose 1,6-bisphosphate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups (phosphotransferases) with an alcohol group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ADP:D-fructose-6-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase. This enzyme is also called ADP-6-phosphofructokinase, ADP-dependent phosphofructokinase.
