• Official Full Name
  • galactokinase 2
  • Background
  • This gene encodes a highly efficient N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) kinase, which has galactokinase activity when galactose is present at high concentrations. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
  • Synonyms
  • GALK2; galactokinase 2; N-acetylgalactosamine kinase; GK2; GaINAc Kinase; galNAc kinase

Protein Function

GALK2 has several biochemical functions, for example, ATP binding, N-acetylgalactosamine kinase activity, galactokinase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by GALK2 itself. We selected most functions GALK2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with GALK2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
