IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
ADP-specific glucokinase
Other name:
ADP-dependent glucokinase
Systematic name:
ADP:D-glucose 6-phosphotransferase




Requires Mg2+. The enzyme from Pyrococcus furiosus is highly specific for D-glucose; there is some activity with 2-deoxy-D-glucose, but no activity with D-fructose, D-mannose or D-galactose as the substrate. No activity is detected when ADP is replaced by ATP, GDP, phosphoenolpyruvate, diphosphate or polyphosphate.
