Summary
Predicted to enable galactokinase activity. Predicted to be involved in galactose metabolic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within phosphorylation. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm. Predicted to be active in cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; ear; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human GALK2 (galactokinase 2). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

    Status: VALIDATED

    Description
    Transcript Variant: This variant (2) contains an alternate 5' terminal exon, and it thus differs in the 5' UTR and 5' coding region, compared to variant 1. The encoded isoform (b) has a distinct N-terminus and is shorter than isoform a.
