Phosphotransferase

Phosphotransferase

Phosphotransferases are a category of enzymes (EC number 2.7) that catalyze phosphorylation reactions. The general form of the reactions they catalyze is:

A—P + B ⇔ B—P + A

Where P is a phosphate group and A and B are the donating and accepting molecules, respectively.
