|Other Names||Glycerol kinase 2, GK 2, Glycerokinase 2, ATP:glycerol 3-phosphotransferase 2, Glycerol kinase, testis specific 2, GK2, GKP2, GKTA|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7131b was selected from the C-term region of human GPK2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism.|
|Cellular Location||Mitochondrion outer membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cytoplasm. Note=In sperm the majority of the enzyme is bound to mitochondria.|

The human glycerol kinase gene family consists of at least 3 expressed loci. The GK1 locus on Xp21.3 is the site of mutations (deletions) causing glycerol kinase deficiency. It comprises 19 exons and is probably ancestral to several other genes which, because they are intronless, are suspected of having arisen by reverse transcriptase mediated events. These include 2 genes on chromosome 4. They are expressed as a single mRNA species in testis where expression is at a high level.
