The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
Flow Cyt 1/100 - 1/500.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function
      Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism.
    • Tissue specificity
      Highly 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.
    • Pathway
      Polyol metabolism; glycerol degradation via glycerol kinase pathway; sn-glycerol 3-phosphate from glycerol: step 1/1.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects 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 similarities
      Belongs to the FGGY kinase family.
    • Cellular localization
      Mitochondrion 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.
