BackgroundIn mammals, four different isoenzymes exist for pyruvate kinase. Pyruvate kinases are responsible for catalyzing the final step in glycolysis: the conversion of phosphoenolpyruvate to pyruvate with the coinciding generation of ATP. The PKM (pyruvate kinase, muscle) gene encodes the M1- and M2-type isoenzymes through alternative splicing events. Both M1- and M2-type isoforms exists as tetramers and are stimulated by fructose 1,6-bisphosphate. In addition, both isoforms exhibit thyroid hormone binding activity and may be referred to as CTHBP (cytosolic thyroid hormone-binding protein) or THBP1. The M2-type isoform also interacts with Oct-4 via its C-terminal domain, functioning to enhance Oct-4 transcriptional activity. Translocates to the nucleus in response to different apoptotic stimuli. Nuclear translocation is sufficient to induce cell death that is caspase independent, isoform-specific and independent of its enzymatic activity.(ER1802-70)
