Ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate (RuBP) is a component of the Calvin cycle that is metabolized into glycerate 3-phosphate (G3P) by the enzyme ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO). RuBP is used to identify, differentiate and characterize ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase(s)/oxygenase(s) (RuBisCO).

The type III ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase-oxygenase (RuBisCO) present in the archaeon Thermococcus kodakaraensis was found to participate in adenosine 5'-monophosphate (AMP) metabolism, a role that is distinct from that of classical RuBisCOs of the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle. Genes annotated as thymidine phosphorylase...

The tissue contents of previously known allosteric effectors of brain phosphofructokinase (EC (PFK) and the kinetic behavior of isolated PFK were investigated during the initiation of rapid glycolytic flux in freeze-blown rat brain. Comparing 0- with 5-s brains revealed...

Macrophages can adapt to the absence of oxygen by switching to anaerobic glycolysis. In this study, we investigated (a) the roles of fructose 2,6-bisphosphate (Fru-2,6-P2) and ribose 1,5-bisphosphate (Rib-1,5-P2), potent activators of phosphofructokinase, (b) the enzymes responsible for the synthesis...

Fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase is one of the regulatory enzymes of gluconeogenesis in kidney cortex. The effect of ribose 1,5-bisphosphate on fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase purified from rat kidney cortex was studied. Rat kidney cortex, fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase exhibited hyperbolic kinetics with regard to its substrate, but the...

6-Phosphofructo-1-kinase and fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase are rate-limiting enzymes for glycolysis and gluconeogenesis respectively, in the fructose 6-phosphate/fructose 1,6-bisphosphate cycle in the liver. The effect of ribose 1,5-bisphosphate on the enzymes was investigated. Ribose 1,5-bisphosphate synergistically relieved the ATP inhibition and increased the...
