Protein

N-acetylgalactosamine kinase

Gene

GALK2

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Acts on GalNAc. Also acts as a galactokinase when galactose is present at high concentrations. May be involved in a salvage pathway for the reutilization of free GalNAc derived from the degradation of complex carbohydrates.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

ATP + N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine = ADP + N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine 1-phosphate.
