Gene: Hk2 (hexokinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Hk2
Name: hexokinase 2
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity; glucose binding activity; and hexokinase activity. Involved in several processes, including lactation; response to hypoxia; and response to ischemia. Localizes to the cytoplasm and plasma membrane. Biomarker of obesity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human HK2 (hexokinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency pathway; Fanconi syndrome pathway; fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 2-ethoxyethanol; 2-methoxyethanol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: hexokinase type II; hexokinase-2; hexokinase-B; HK II; type II hexokinase
