- ID: EG12188
- Name: ptsP
- Organism: E. coli
- UniProt ID: P37177
- Description: EG12188 is the gene that codes for the phosphoenolpyruvate-protein phosphotransferase enzyme. This catalyzes the reaction between phosphoenolpyruvate and protein L-histidine to create pyruvate and protein N(pi)-phospho-L-histidine . Specifically, the phosphoenolpyruvate-protein phosphotransferase enzyme only works on histidine residues in certain phosphocarrier proteins with low molecular masses which are taking part in bacterial sugar transport . The phosphoenolpyruvate-protein phosphotransferase enzyme is part of the enzymes transferring phosphorus-containing groups combined with a nitrogenous group as an acceptor within the "transferases" family .

- Equivalent E. coli / JCVI functional protein: MMSYN1 0233.
- Expression Level: medium
- Expression Level Hypothesis: The ptsP gene is part of the the phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS). It is needed by the cell since it helps create pyruvate, which is needed for cell respiration.
- Expression Level References and Description: The ptsP gene was in the E. coli proteome.
- Expression Time: At which time should the gene be expressed in the lifecycle of our organism? Early
- Expression Level Hypothesis: Cell respiration is essential for cellular growth, and pyruvate is an essential component. Thus it is essential to express this gene early.
- Expression Time References and Description: Research description above and UniProt.
- Other Components: ptsN ptsN, Phosphotransferase enzyme IIA component
- Possible Dependencies: Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase is needed so that phosphoenolpyruvate is created, which is needed for the PTS system to function 
- Process: phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system
- Inputs: Phosphoenolpyruvate, protein L-histidine
- Outputs: pyruvate, rotein N(pi)-phospho-L-histidine
