Figure 1: This is the amino acid sequence of Human glucokinase on top lined up with the corresponding sequence in the common mouse (Mus musculus). The red highlighted amino acids are those required for glucose binding. The green highlights are those that are most oftne mutated causing Type II diabetes. The * shows a conserved amino acid between the two proteins while : and . represent when the amino acids change from a non charged species to a charged species.
