Protein

N-acetyl-D-glucosamine kinase

Gene

NAGK

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

Functioni

Converts endogenous N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc), a major component of complex carbohydrates, from lysosomal degradation or nutritional sources into GlcNAc 6-phosphate. Involved in the N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) degradation pathway: although human is not able to catalyze formation of Neu5Gc due to the inactive CMAHP enzyme, Neu5Gc is present in food and must be degraded. Also has ManNAc kinase activity.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

ATP + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine = ADP + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate.1 Publication

Pathwayi: N-acetylneuraminate degradation

This protein is involved in the pathway N-acetylneuraminate degradation, which is part of Amino-sugar metabolism.1 Publication
