General Information

Product name Anti-GCK Antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal to GCK
Description Hexokinases phosphorylate glucose to produce glucose-6-phosphate, the first step in most glucose metabolism pathways. Alternative splicing of this gene results in three tissue-specific forms of glucokinase, one found in pancreatic islet beta cells and two found in liver. The protein localizes to the outer membrane of mitochondria. In contrast to other forms of hexokinase, this enzyme is not inhibited by its product glucose-6-phosphate but remains active while glucose is abundant. Mutations in this gene have been associated with non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), maturity onset diabetes of the young, type 2 (MODY2) and persistent hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia of infancy (PHHI).

Alternative Names GCKGlucokinase GCK
Function Catalyzes the initial step in utilization of glucose by the beta-cell and liver at physiological glucose concentration, Glucokinase has a high Km for glucose, and so it is effective only when glucose is abundant, The role of GCK is to provide G6P for the synthesis of glycogen, Pancreatic glucokinase plays an important role in modulating insulin secretion, Hepatic glucokinase helps to facilitate the uptake and conversion of glucose by acting as an insulin-sensitive determinant of hepatic glucose usage.
Cellular Localization Cytoplasm
Tissue Specificity Isoform 1 is expressed in pancreas, isoform 2 and isoform 3 is expressed in liver
