Rate-limiting Description

"We suggest that this difference reflects a change in the steady state level of a previously unknown effector of ADP-glucose synthetase (glucose 1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, EC the rate-limiting enzyme of bacterial glycogen synthesis." (381303)

"In all of the metabolic conditions studied in this report the adenylate energy charge ((ATP + 1/2 ADP)/(ATP + ADP + AMP)) and the level of the rate-limiting enzyme of glycogen synthesis, ADP-glucose synthetase (glucose 1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, EC, were the same." (224050)

"We also show that physiological concentrations of GTP inhibit ADP-glucose synthetase (glucose-1-phosphate adenylyltransferase, EC, the rate-limiting enzyme of bacterial glycogen synthesis, in vitro." (2981798)
