DESCRIPTION
Also known as GLPK_SALHS, glpK. Key enzyme in the regulation of glycerol uptake and metabolism. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of glycerol to yield sn-glycerol 3-phosphate. 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.
