KEGG   ENZYME: 3.1.3.94Help
Entry
EC 3.1.3.94                 Enzyme                                 

Name
D-galactose 1-phosphate phosphatase
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Phosphoric-monoester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
alpha-D-galactose-1-phosphate phosphohydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
alpha-D-galactose 1-phosphate + H2O = D-galactose + phosphate [RN:R10622]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
alpha-D-galactose 1-phosphate [CPD:C00446];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
D-galactose [CPD:C00124];
phosphate [CPD:C00009]
Comment
The human enzyme also has the activity of EC 3.1.3.25, inositol-phosphate phosphatase. The enzyme has very low activity with L-galactose 1-phosphate (cf. EC 3.1.3.93, L-galactose 1-phosphate phosphatase).
