BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
kinesin ATP phosphohydrolase (minus-end-directed)
Reaction(IUBMB)
ATP + H2O = ADP + phosphate [RN:R00086]
Reaction(KEGG)

ATP [CPD:C00002];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
ADP [CPD:C00008];
phosphate [CPD:C00009]
Comment
Structurally almost identical to EC 3.6.4.3 (microtubule-severing ATPase) but the movement it catalyses is towards the minus end of microtubules.
History
EC 3.6.4.5 created 2000
