MetaCyc Reaction: 2.7.1.162

Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion TypeSimple ReactionsChemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By SubstrateSmall-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: 2.7.1.162

Enzymes and Genes:

Bifidobacterium longum: N-acetylhexosamine kinaseInferred from experiment: lnpB

The direction shown, i.e. which substrates are on the left and right sides, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Instance reaction:
ATP + N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine = ADP + N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine 1-phosphate + H+ (2.7.1.157)

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): -14.815857Inferred by computational analysis [Latendresse13]

Enzyme Commission Summary:
Differs from EC 2.7.1.157, 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].
