Hexokinase Type 1
Hexokinase is an enzyme that participates in the first step of glycolysis.
Hexokinase converts glucose to glucose 6-phosphate by utilizing one molecule
of ATP, which is converted to ADP.

Since glycolysis is an energy-yielding process that is common to most
forms of life, the transcription and translation sequences of hexokinase
are available from a variety of species. Listed below are five species
for which the transcription and translation sequences of hexokinase have
been determined. The source for these sequences is GenBank
The similarity of the sequences of hexokinase 1 from these five species was determined using MacDNAsis Analysis.
