Hexokinase II (3D7) Mouse mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total hexokinase II protein.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gly332 of human hexokinase II protein.
Hexokinase catalyzes the conversion of glucose to glucose-6-phosphate, the first step in glycolysis. Four distinct mammalian hexokinase isoforms, designated as hexokinase I, II, III, and IV (glucokinase), have been identified. Hexokinases I, II, and III are associated with the outer mitochondrial membrane and are critical for maintaining an elevated rate of aerobic glycolysis in cancer cells (Warburg Effect) (1) in order to compensate for the increased energy demands associated with rapid cell growth and proliferation (2,3).
