  • Tissue specificityPredominant hexokinase isozyme expressed in insulin-responsive tissues such as skeletal muscle.
  • PathwayCarbohydrate metabolism; hexose metabolism.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the hexokinase family.
    Contains 2 hexokinase domains.
  • DomainThe N- and C-terminal halves of this hexokinase show extensive sequence similarity to each other. The catalytic activity is associated with the C-terminus while regulatory function is associated with the N-terminus. Each domain can bind a single glucose and Gluc-6-P molecule.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion outer membrane. Its hydrophobic N-terminal sequence may be involved in membrane binding.
