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: N-acetylhexosamine 1-kinase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: NahK, LnpB, N-acetylgalactosamine/N-acetylglucosamine 1-kinase
Taxonomic Range: Bacteria
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): -14.815857 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Differs from EC 22.214.171.124, N-acetylgalactosamine kinase, as it can phosphorylate both N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine and N-acetyl-β-D-glucosamine at similar rates. Also has some activity with N-acetyl-β-D-mannosamine, D-talose and D-mannose as substrate. ATP can be replaced by GTP or ITP but with decreased enzyme activity. Requires a divalent cation, with Mg2+ resulting in by far the greatest stimulation of enzyme activity [Nishimoto07].
Instance reaction of [an N-acetyl-D-hexosamine + ATP = an N-acetyl-α-D-hexosamine 1-phosphate + ADP + H+] (126.96.36.199):
i1: ATP + N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine = ADP + N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine 1-phosphate + H+ (188.8.131.52)
