Pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase
Pyruvate dehydrogenase kinase participates in the regulation of the pyruvate dehydrogenase complex. When phosphorylated, pyruvate dehydrogenase is inactivated. Dephosphorylation and activation of pyruvate dehydrogenase is catalyzed by a phosphoprotein phosphatase called pyruvate dehydrogenase phosphatase.
It has four isozymes:
- Dichloroacetic acid
- Pyruvate dehydrogenase complex
- pyruvate+dehydrogenase+kinase at the US National Library of Medicine Medical Subject Headings (MeSH)
- EC 126.96.36.199
