Human and murine glycerol kinase: influence of exon 18 alternative splicing on function.

Abstract

Glycerol kinase (GK) is a key enzyme in glycerol metabolism with two alternatively spliced forms-one with an 87bp insertion corresponding to exon 18 (GK+EX18), and one lacking exon 18 (GK-EX18). We report the expression of GK+/-EX18 in various tissues and cell lines, as well as their enzymatic characteristics and subcellular localization. RT-PCR revealed… (More)
