DESCRIPTION
Also known as HXK1_MOUSE, Hk1. Catalyzes the phosphorylation of various hexoses, such as D-glucose, D-glucosamine, D-fructose, D-mannose and 2-deoxy-D-glucose, to hexose 6-phosphate (D-glucose 6-phosphate, D-glucosamine 6-phosphate, D-fructose 6-phosphate, D-mannose 6-phosphate and 2-deoxy-D-glucose 6-phosphate, respectively). Does not phosphorylate N-acetyl-D-glucosamine (By similarity). Mediates the initial step of glycolysis by catalyzing phosphorylation of D-glucose to D-glucose 6-phosphate (By similarity). Involved in innate immunity and inflammation by acting as a pattern recognition receptor for bacterial peptidoglycan. When released in the cytosol, N-acetyl-D-glucosamine component of bacterial peptidoglycan inhibits the hexokinase activity of HK1 and causes its dissociation from mitochondrial outer membrane, thereby activating the NLRP3 inflammasome (PubMed:27374331). Monomer (By similarity). Interacts with RABL2/RABL2A; binds preferentially to GTP-bound RABL2 (PubMed:23055941). Interacts with VDAC1. The HK1-VDAC1 complex interacts with ATF2 (By similarity). Interacts (via N-terminal spermatogenic cell-specific region) with PFKM isoform 2 and isoform 3 (via C-terminus) (PubMed:19889946).
