ADP-specific Phosphofructokinase/Glucokinase conserved region
In archaea a novel type of glycolytic pathway exists that is deviant from the classical Embden-Meyerhof pathway. This pathway utilizes two novel proteins: an ADP-dependent Glucokinase and an ADP-dependent Phosphofructokinase. This conserved region is present at the C-terminal of both these proteins. Interestingly this family contains sequences from higher eukaryotes..
