Native Cellulomonas sp. Glycerokinase

Cat No.
NATE-0287
Description
Glycerol kinase is a phosphotransferase enzyme involved in triglycerides and glycerophospholipids synthesis. Glycerol kinase catalyzes tge MgATP-dependent phosphorylation of glycerol to produce sn-glycerol-3-phosphate and is the rate limiting enzyme in the utilization of glycerol. It is also subject to feedback regulation by fructose-1,6-bisphosphate.
Abbr
GK, Native (Cellulomonas sp.)
Alias
GK
Source
Cellulomonas sp.
Applications
This enzyme is useful for enzymatic determination of glycerol and triglyceride when coupled with glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (=G-3-P DH, G3D-301), glycerol-3-phosphate oxidase (=G-3-P oxidase, G3O-301, G3O-311, G3O-321) or pyruvate kinase (PYK-301) and lactate dehydrogenase (LCD-209, LCD-211), lipoprotein lipase (LPL-311, LPL-314) in clinical analysis.
Product Overview
phosphoryl moiety of ATP to one of the primary hydroxyl group of glycerol, forming sn-glycerol-3-P. The enzyme has the highest specificity for glycerol, and also phosphorylates dihydroxyacetone and glyceraldehyde (Table 1,2). Mg++ is essentially required for the reaction.
