Comments [?]

Function Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol to yield sn-glycerol 3-phosphate.
Catalytic activity RHEA:21644: ATP + glycerol = ADP + H(+) + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Activity regulation Activity of this regulatory enzyme is affected by several metabolites. Allosterically and non-competitively inhibited by fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP) and unphosphorylated phosphocarrier protein EIIA-Glc (III-Glc), an integral component of the bacterial phosphotransferase (PTS) system.
else case <OC:Firmicutes>
Activity regulation Activated by phosphorylation and inhibited by fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP).
else case not <OC:Archaea>
Activity regulation Inhibited by fructose 1,6-bisphosphate (FBP).
end case
Pathway Polyol metabolism; glycerol degradation via glycerol kinase pathway; sn-glycerol 3-phosphate from glycerol: step 1/1.
case <OC:Enterobacterales>
Subunit Homotetramer and homodimer (in equilibrium). Heterodimer with EIIA-Glc. Binds 1 zinc ion per glycerol kinase EIIA-Glc dimer. The zinc ion is important for dimerization.
else case <OC:Firmicutes>
Subunit Homotetramer and homodimer (in equilibrium).
end case
case <FTGroup:1>
Ptm The phosphoenolpyruvate-dependent sugar phosphotransferase system (PTS), including enzyme I, and histidine-containing protein (HPr) are required for the phosphorylation, which leads to the activation of the enzyme.
end case
Similarity Belongs to the FGGY kinase family.
