|Gene:||glxK||Accession Numbers: G6283 (MetaCyc), b0514, ECK0507|
Synonyms: glxB5, ybbZ
Species: Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655
Glycerate kinase II (GKII), encoded by glxK, catalyzes the formation of 3-phosphoglycerate from D-glycerate [Doughty66].
There are two glycerate kinases, known as GKI and GKII, in E. coli. GKII is less thermostable and has a narrower pH optimum than GKI [Ornston69a].
A glxK mutant is unable to utilize glyoxylate [Cusa99].
