Introduction

Hexokinases phosphorylate glucose to produce glucose-6-phosphate, thus committing glucose to the glycolytic pathway. Hexokinase 2 is the predominant form found in skeletal muscle. It localizes to the outer membrane of mitochondria. Expression of this gene is insulin-responsive, and studies in rat suggest that it is involved in the increased rate of glycolysis seen in rapidly growing cancer cells.

Description

HK2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain (aa 1-917) fused to a 20 His tag at the N-terminal encoding the sequence of 937 amino acids in total and having a molecular mass of 104.1 kDa.
HXK2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

The protein (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl pH8.0 and 10% glycerol.

Stability

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. 
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). 
Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 85.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

Specific activity is 3-4 units/ml obtained by measuring the increase of NADPH in absorbance at 340 nm resulting from the reduction of NADP. In the coupled mode, one unit will produce 1.0 umole of NADPH per minute as glucose is phosphorylated by ATP at pH 7.4 at 30C.
