PFAM accession number:PF10509
Interpro abstract (IPR019539):

This entry represents an N-terminal conserved domain found in all galactokinases, irrespective of how many other ATP binding sites, etc that they carry [ (PUBMED:10359639) ]. The function of this domain appears to be to bind galactose [ (PUBMED:12796487) ], and it is normally located at the N terminus of these enzymes [ (PUBMED:15526155) ]. It is associated with IPR013750 and IPR006204 . While all enzymes in this entry posses galactokinase activity, some are annotated as N-acetylgalactosamine kinases as they also posses this enzyme activity.

This domain can also be found in mevalonate kinase and related proteins from all domains of life. It can also be found in arabinose kinase from Arabidopsis [ (PUBMED:10344205) ].

This is a PFAM domain. For full annotation and more information, please see the PFAM entry GalKase_gal_bdg
