IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature

EC 7.1.3.1

Accepted name: H+-exporting diphosphatase

Reaction: diphosphate + H2O + H+[side 1] = 2 phosphate + H+[side 2]

Other name(s): H+-PPase; proton-pumping pyrophosphatase; vacuolar H+-pyrophosphatase; hydrogen-translocating pyrophosphatase; proton-pumping dihosphatase

Systematic name: diphosphate phosphohydrolase (H+-transporting)

Comments: This enzyme, found in plants and fungi, couples the energy from diphosphate hydrolysis to active proton translocation across the tonoplast into the vacuole. The enzyme acts cooperatively with cytosolic soluble diphosphatases to regulate the cytosolic diphosphate level.
