Descriptor hexocinasa
Entry term(s) hexoquinasa
Scope note: Enzima que cataliza la conversión de ATP y D-hexosa en ADP y D-hexosa 6-fosfato. La D-glucosa, D-manosa, D-fructosa, sorbitol y D-glucosamina pueden actuar como aceptores. El ITP y dATP pueden actuar como donadores. La isoenzima hepática a veces ha sido deniminada glucoquinasa. (Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 2.7.1.1.
