|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001477, 2646, 231103 (mouse), 25658 (rat)|
|Calculated MW||68685 Da|
|Other Names||Glucokinase regulatory protein, GKRP, Glucokinase regulator, GCKR|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-GCKR Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inhibits glucokinase (GCK) by forming an inactive complex with this enzyme. The affinity of GCKR for GCK is modulated by fructose metabolites: GCKR with bound fructose 6- phosphate has increased affinity for GCK, while GCKR with bound fructose 1-phosphate has strongly decreased affinity for GCK and does not inhibit GCK activity.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Under low glucose concentrations, GKRP associates with GCK and the inactive complex is recruited to the hepatocyte nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Found in liver and pancreas. Not detected in muscle, brain, heart, thymus, intestine, uterus, adipose tissue, kidney, adrenal, lung or spleen.|

This gene encodes a protein belonging to the GCKR subfamily of the SIS (Sugar ISomerase) family of proteins. The gene product is a regulatory protein that inhibits glucokinase in liver and pancreatic islet cells by binding non-covalently to form an inactive complex with the enzyme. This gene is considered a susceptibility gene candidate for a form of maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY).
