Will be supplied as "Hexokinase (HK) from Yeast Overproducer". Unit of measure is "MU".
Recombinant enzyme that converts hexose to hexose-6-phosphate.
Use Hexokinase in diagnostic tests for blood glucose using the hexokinase method and for the determination of creatine kinase.
Nomenclature: ATP:D-hexose 6-phosphotransferase
Molecular weight: 57 kD (SDS-PAGE)
Isoelectric point: 4.5-5.0
Michaelis constants (D-glucose):
Phosphate buffer, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.0; +25°C: 3.05 x 10-4 mol/L
Phosphate buffer, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.4; +30°C: 1.90 x 10-4 mol/L
Tea buffer, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.6; +25°C: 2.30 x 10-4 mol/L
Michaelis constants (ATP):
Tris buffer, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.6; +28°C: 1.60 x 10-4 mol/L
Tea buffer, 0.1 mol/L, pH 7.6; +25°C: 1.90 x 10-4 mol/L
Inhibitors: EDTA, SH-blocking compounds, sorbose-1-phosphate, polyphosphates, 6-deoxy-6-fluoroglucose, 2-C-hydroxymethylglucose, lyxose.
Activators: Mg2+, catecholamines
pH optimum: 7.0-10.0 (see figure)
Temperature dependence: See figure
pH stability: 5.0-9.0 (see figure)
Thermal stability: 100% for 20 minutes at +37°C, 50% for 20 minutes at +45°C, 75% for 5 hours at +37°C (see figures)
Specificity: Hexokinase phosphorylates D-glucose, D-fructose, D-mannose, D-glucosamin, 2-deoxyglucose. L-Arabinose, D-xylose, L-rhamnose, D-galactose, D-lactose, sucrose, maltose, trehalose, raffinose, N-acetyl glucosamine do not react. ATP can be partially replaced by other nucleotides.
