The product of this gene belongs to the FGGY kinase familyof proteins and encodes glycerol kinase. Glycerol kinase is a keyenzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Itcatalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol by ATP, yielding ADP andglycerol-3-phosphate. Defects in this gene are the cause ofglycerol kinase deficiency (GKD). Alternatively spliced transcriptvariants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
