The membrane-bound hexokinase as a potential marker for malignancy in human gliomas.


Hexokinase is a key enzyme in carbohydrate metabolism. Its activity has been shown elevated in cells with high mitotic index. In particular, experimental cancer cells, due to their peculiar energy metabolism, display a hexokinase activity proportional to the degree of malignancy. This is the case also for human gliomas in which glucose metabolism, evaluated… (More)
