Summaries for NAGK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NAGK Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the N-acetylhexosamine kinase family. The encoded protein catalyzes the conversion of N-acetyl-D-glucosamine to N-acetyl-D-glucosamine 6-phosphate, and is the major mammalian enzyme which recovers amino sugars. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2011]

GeneCards Summary for NAGK Gene

NAGK (N-Acetylglucosamine Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Amino sugar and nucleotide sugar metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include N-acylmannosamine kinase activity and N-acetylglucosamine kinase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NAGK Gene

  • Converts endogenous N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc), a major component of complex carbohydrates, from lysosomal degradation or nutritional sources into GlcNAc 6-phosphate. Involved in the N-glycolylneuraminic acid (Neu5Gc) degradation pathway: although human is not able to catalyze formation of Neu5Gc due to the inactive CMAHP enzyme, Neu5Gc is present in food and must be degraded. Also has ManNAc kinase activity.
