Comments [?]

Function Catalyzes the phosphorylation of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (GlcNAc) derived from cell-wall degradation, yielding GlcNAc-6-P.
Catalytic activity RHEA:17417: ATP + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine = ADP + H(+) + N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate
Pathway Cell wall biogenesis; peptidoglycan recycling.
Similarity Belongs to the ROK (NagC/XylR) family. NagK subfamily.
