Phosphoric monoester hydrolases

Phosphoric monoester hydrolases

Phosphoric monoester hydrolases (or phosphomonoesterases) are enzymes that catalyse the hydrolysis of O-P bonds by nucleophillic attack of phosphorus by cysteine residues or coordinated metal ions.

They are categorized with the EC number 3.1.3.

Examples include:
* acid phosphatase
* alkaline phosphatase
* fructose-bisphosphatase
* glucose-6-phosphatase
* phosphofructokinase-2
* phosphoprotein phosphatase
* calcineurin
* 6-phytase

ee also

* phosphodiesterase
* phosphatase
