IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.7.1.30

Names

Accepted name:
glycerol kinase
Other names:
ATP:glycerol-3-phosphotransferase
GK
glyceric kinase
glycerokinase
glycerol kinase (phosphorylating)
Systematic name:
ATP:glycerol 3-phosphotransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Glycerone and L-glyceraldehyde can act as acceptors; UTP (and, in the case of the yeast enzyme, ITP and GTP) can act as donors.
