Abstract

The diverse enzymes that use phosphoenolpyruvate as a substrate lie at the heart of cellular energy metabolism, as well as a number of critical biosynthetic pathways. The versatility of the enol ether linkage is reflected not only in the rich chemistry and enzymology of PEP, but also in the variety of metabolites in which the high-energy enol ether linkage is preserved.
