In Pathway: glycerol degradation I
The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.
Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.
Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: glycerol kinase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: glycerokinase, GK, ATP:glycerol-3-phosphotransferase, glycerol kinase (phosphorylating), glyceric kinase
This is the first reaction in the pathway for the utilization of glycerol as a carbon and energy source.
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Glycerone and L-glyceraldehyde can act as acceptors; UTP (and, in the case of the yeast enzyme, ITP and GTP) can act as donors.
