—The enzymatic phosphorylation of glycerol and dihydroxyacetone by ATP to sn‐glycerol‐3‐phosphate and dihydroxyacetone phosphate respectively in various subcellular fractions of rat brain was studied. A sensitive radiochemical assay was used where the labelled phosphorylated products were separated from the radioactive substrates by high voltage paper electrophoresis and the radioactivity in these compounds determined. Using this assay the glycerol kinase (EC 2.7.1.30) activity was found to be… Expand
Human and rat adrenal glycerol kinase: subcellular distribution and bisubstrate kinetics
TLDR
This report provides a background to biochemical investigations on human glycerol kinase deficiency, an inborn error of metabolism which may be characterized by adrenal hypoplasia and insufficiency. Expand
Binding and function of mitochondrial glycerol kinase in comparison with those of mitochondrial hexokinase.
TLDR
Positive correlation was found between the formation of glycerol 3-phosphate by mitochondrial-bound Glycerol kinase and ATP content in mitochondria in experiments using various concentrations of succinate and ADP. Expand
Glycerol oxidation in rat brain: Subcellular localization and kinetic characteristics
TLDR
The data support the primary localization of glycerol oxidation in nonsynaptic mitochondria in brain and the presence in that organelle of enzymes of the Embden‐Meyerhoff pathway or an as yet unidentified system for oxidizing this compound. Expand
Mitochondrial glycerol kinase of Culex pipiens fatigans
TLDR
Glycerol kinase activity in the fourth instar larvae of Culex pipiens fatigans was localized in the mitochondrial fraction and reduced glutathione protected the enzyme from inhibition by PCMB. Expand
Identification of human and rat FAD-AMP lyase (cyclic FMN forming) as ATP-dependent dihydroxyacetone kinases.
TLDR
Evidence supports that a single protein sustains both activities, probably in a single active center, of rat liver FAD-AMP lyase or FMN cyclase, which is the only known enzymatic source of the unusual flavin nucleotide riboflavin 4',5'-cyclic phosphate. Expand
Subcellular distribution and kinetic properties of soluble and particulate-associated bovine adrenal 21vcerol kinase
TLDR
The data presented here indicate that bound glycerol kinase found within the mitochondrial fraction is kinetically distinct from soluble glycerl kinase and binding to mitochondria is responsive to substrate and product levels within the physiological range. Expand
Mechanistic and kinetics elucidation of Mg2+/ATP molar ratio effect on glycerol kinase
Abstract Detailed kinetics and mechanistic analyses of glycerol kinase from Cellulomonas sp. with respect to Mg2+ to ATP molar ratio were performed. The enzyme essentially requires Mg2+ for itsExpand
Conserved family of glycerol kinase loci in Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
Functional domains in the protein required for GK activity are characterized, including additional conserved domains that suggest novel nuclear and mitochondrial functions for glycerol kinase in apoptosis and transcriptional regulation. Expand
Phospholipids and acylglycerols biosynthesis and 14CO2 production from [14C]glycerol in the bovine retina: the effects of incubation time, oxygen and glucose.
TLDR
There was a dramatic decrease in the triacylglycerol biosynthesis without modification of glycerol incorporation in the polar lipids and augmented the labeling in the lipid-free tissue residue. Expand
Metabolic Alterations in Brain Autopsies: Proton NMR Identification of Free Glycerol
TLDR
Significant changes due to the hydrolysis of N‐acetylaspartate to acetate and aspartate as well as the decomposition of glycerophosphocholine into free choline and glycerol correlated linearly with the duration of PMI. Expand
