Conserved Site

Carbohydrate kinase, FGGY, conserved site (IPR018483)

Short name: Carb_kinase_FGGY_CS


It has been shown [PMID: 1659648] that four different type of carbohydrate kinases seem to be evolutionary related. These enzymes include L-fucolokinase (EC: (gene fucK); gluconokinase (EC: (gene gntK); glycerol kinase (EC: (gene glpK); xylulokinase (EC: (gene xylB); and L-xylulose kinase (EC: (gene lyxK). These enzymes are proteins of from 480 to 520 amino acid residues.

This entry represents conserved regions found in the central and C-terminal regions of these enzymes.
