Recombinant Human GK

Cat.No.: GK-29028TH
Product Overview: Recombinant fragment of Human Glycerol kinase (aa 2-94) with a N terminal proprietary tag: predicted molecular weight 35.86 kDa.
Description: The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the FGGY kinase family. This protein is a key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. It catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol by ATP, yielding ADP and glycerol-3-phosphate. Mutations in this gene are associated with glycerol kinase deficiency (GKD). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Protein length: 93 amino acids
Molecular Weight: 35.860kDa inclusive of tags
Source: Wheat germ
Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in the liver, kidney and testis. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed specifically in testis and fetal liver, but not in the adult liver.
