Biochemical characterization, cloning, and sequencing of ADP-dependent (AMP-forming) glucokinase from two hyperthermophilic archaea, Pyrococcus furiosus and Thermococcus litoralis



Biochemical characterization, cloning, and sequencing of ADP-dependent (AMP-forming) glucokinase from two hyperthermophilic archaea, Pyrococcus furiosus and Thermococcus litoralis



Journal of Biochemistry 128(6): 1079-1085



The ADP-dependent (AMP-forming) glucokinases from the hyperthermophilic archaea Pyrococcus furiosus and Thermococcus litoralis catalyze the phosphorylation of glucose using ADP as the essential phosphoryl group donor. Both enzymes were purified to homogeneity and characterized with regard to each other. The enzymes had similar enzymological properties as to substrate specificity, coenzyme specificity, optimum pH, and thermostability.
