galactokinase

<enzyme> An enzyme that catalyses reversibly the formation of galactose 1-phosphate and ADP from ATP and d-galactose. Galactosamine can also act as the acceptor. A deficiency of this enzyme results in galactosaemia. ... Chemical name: ATP:D-galactose 1-phosphotransferase ... Registry number: EC 2.7.1.6 ... (12 Dec 1998) ...

galactokinase

Type: Term Pronunciation: gă-lak′tō-kī′nās Definitions: 1. An enzyme (a phosphotransferase) that, in the presence of ATP, catalyzes the phosphorylation of d-galactose to d-galactose-1-phosphate, the first step in the metabolism of d-galactose; galactokinase is deficient in one form of galactosemia.

Galactokinase

Galactokinase is an enzyme (phosphotransferase) that facilitates the phosphorylation of α-D-galactose to galactose 1-phosphate at the expense of one molecule of ATP. Galactokinase catalyzes the second step of the Leloir pathway, a metabolic pathway found in most organisms for the catabolism of β-D-galactose to glucose 1-phosphate. First isolated...
