Organism
Rattus norvegicus (Rat)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the initial step in utilization of glucose by the beta-cell and liver at physiological glucose concentration. Pancreatic glucokinase plays an important role in modulating insulin secretion. Hepatic glucokinase helps to facilitate the uptake and conversion of glucose by acting as an insulin-sensitive determinant of hepatic glucose usage.By similarity

Miscellaneous

In vertebrates there are four major glucose-phosphorylating isoenzymes, designated hexokinase I, II, III and IV (glucokinase).

Catalytic activityi

ATP + D-glucose = ADP + D-glucose 6-phosphate.By similarity

Enzyme regulationi

Low glucose and high fructose-6-phosphate triggers association with the inhibitor GKRP followed by sequestration in the nucleus.1 Publication

Sequences (3)i

Sequence statusi: Complete.

This entry describes 3 isoformsi produced by alternative promoter usage and alternative splicing. AlignAdd to basket

Note: A number of isoforms are produced by alternative promoter usage. The use of alternative promoters apparently enables the type IV hexokinase gene to be regulated by insulin in the liver and glucose in the beta cell. This may constitute an important feedback loop for maintaining glucose homeostasis.
Isoform 1 (identifier: P17712-1) [UniParc]FASTAAdd to basket

This isoform has been chosen as the 'canonical' sequence. All positional information in this entry refers to it. This is also the sequence that appears in the downloadable versions of the entry.
