MetaCyc Enzyme: mannokinase

Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655

Mannokinase activity in E. coli is constitutively expressed; the enzyme can also phosphorylate fructose and to a lesser extent glucosamine, D-glucose and 2-deoxyglucose [Sebastian67, Sebastian72].

The gene encoding mannokinase is unknown.
