Description

Packaging

1000 units in serum bottle

Unit Definition

One unit will convert 1.0 μmole of glycerol and ATP to L-α-glycerophosphate and ADP per min at pH 9.8 at 25 °C in a coupled system with PK/LDH.

Physical form

Partially purified lyophilized powder, balance is primarily salts and EDTA.

Application

Glycerol kinase (glpK) was used to study the effects of pain controlling neuropeptides on human fat cell lipolysis.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Glycerol kinase catalyzes tge MgATP-dependent phosphorylation of glycerol to produce sn-glycerol-3-phosphate and is the rate limiting enzyme in the utilization of glycerol. <<<20,21>>> It is also subject to feedback regulation by fructose-1,6-bisphosphate.<<<22>>>
