The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Biological activitySpecific activity is 3-4 units/ml obtained by measuring the increase of NADPH in absorbance at 340 nm resulting from the reduction of NADP. In the coupled mode, one unit will produce 1.0 umole of NADPH per minute as glucose is phosphorylated by ATP at pH 7.4 at 30C.
% SDS-PAGE. ab85920 is prified using conventional chromatography techniques.

Hexokinase 2 muscle
Hexokinase type II
Muscle form hexokinase
Tissue specificityPredominant hexokinase isozyme expressed in insulin-responsive tissues such as skeletal muscle.
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.
