Glucokinase, ECK2384, JW2385.
Glucokinase or GLK, is a protein, part of the bacterial glucokinase superfamily. In the bacteria E. coli, glucose can be transported to the inner cell through a system called PTS as glucose 6-phosphate, therefore, GLK is less crucial to the bacteria.
GLK E.Coli Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 344 amino acids (1-321) and having a molecular mass of 37.1kDa.
GLK is fused to a 23 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
GLK protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 0.15M NaCl, 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0) and 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is > 70unit/mg obtained by measuring the increase of NADPH in absorbance at 340 nm resulting from the reduction of NADP. One unit will oxidize 1.0 umole of Glucose to D-glucose 6-phosphate per minute in the presence of Beta-NADP at pH 9.0 at 37C.
