Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped on dry ice. Upon delivery aliquot and store at -80ºC. Avoid freeze / thaw cycles.
pH: 8.00 Constituents: 0.3% Glutathione, 0.79% Tris HCl
ATP glycerol 3 phosphotransferase
ATP:glycerol 3 phosphotransferase
FunctionKey enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in the liver, kidney and testis. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 are expressed specifically in testis and fetal liver, but not in the adult liver.
PathwayPolyol metabolism; glycerol degradation via glycerol kinase pathway; sn-glycerol 3-phosphate from glycerol: step 1/1.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in GK are the cause of GK deficiency (GKD) [MIM:307030]. This disease can be either symptomatic with episodic metabolic and CNS decompensation or asymptomatic with hyperglycerolemia and hyperglyceroluria only.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the FGGY kinase family.
Cellular localizationMitochondrion outer membrane. Cytoplasm. In sperm and fetal tissues, the majority of the enzyme is bound to mitochondria, but in adult tissues, such as liver found in the cytoplasm.
