Gene: Gk5 (glycerol kinase 5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gk5
Name: glycerol kinase 5
Description: Predicted to have glycerol kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including glycerol metabolic process; glycerol-3-phosphate biosynthetic process; and triglyceride metabolic process. Predicted to localize to mitochondrion. Orthologous to human GK5 (glycerol kinase 5); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A; endosulfan.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: glycerol kinase 5 (putative); LOC367146; putative glycerol kinase 5; RGD1311223; similar to RIKEN cDNA C330018K18 gene
