It has been demonstrated that the reaction of ATP beta S and 3-P-glycerate catalyzed by 3-P-glycerate kinase, unlike the reaction with ATP, can form a readily detectable amount of 1,3-bis-P-glycerate as observed by 31P NMR. By quantifying production of 1,3-bis-P-glycerate from the phosphorothioate analogue of ATP as a function of time as the reaction approaches equilibrium, Keq for the reaction was estimated to be approximately 400, about 1 order of magnitude less than the equilibrium constant previously reported for the analogous reaction of the normal nucleotide substrates.
