Molybdate-transporting ATPase

Jump to: navigation, search

In enzymology, a molybdate-transporting ATPase (EC is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

ATP + H2O + molybdateout ADP + phosphate + molybdatein

The 3 substrates of this enzyme are ATP, H2O, and molybdate, whereas its 3 products are ADP, phosphate, and molybdate.

This enzyme belongs to the family of hydrolases, specifically those acting on acid anhydrides acting on acid anhydrides to catalyse transmembrane movement of substances. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP phosphohydrolase (molybdate-importing). This enzyme participates in abc transporters - general.
