Gene: Gk2 (glycerol kinase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gk2
Name: glycerol kinase 2
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. Localizes to the mitochondrion. Orthologous to human GK2 (glycerol kinase 2); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; pirinixic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ATP:glycerol 3-phosphotransferase 2; GK 2; Gk-rs2; GKTA; glucokinase activity, related sequence 2; glycerokinase 2; glycerol kinase, testis specific 2
