Gene: Galk1 (galactokinase 1) Mus musculus
Symbol: Galk1
Name: galactokinase 1
RGD ID: 10617
Description: Exhibits galactokinase activity. Involved in galactitol metabolic process and glycolytic process from galactose. Predicted to localize to cytosol. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; central nervous system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and galactokinase deficiency. Orthologous to human GALK1 (galactokinase 1); PARTICIPATES IN galactokinase deficiency pathway; galactose metabolic pathway; galactosemia pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-7H-xanthine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
