Family

Glycerate kinase (IPR004381)

Short name: Glycerate_kinase

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family includes glycerate kinase 2 (EC:2.7.1.31), which catalyses the phosphorylation of (R)-glycerate to 3-phospho-(R)-glycerate in the presence of ATP. There are two glycerate kinases in E. coli, known as GKI and GKII [PMID: 4887503] and GKII is encoded by glxK [PMID: 5325263].
