Form Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
Buffer If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol.
Note: If you have any special requirement for the glycerol content, please remark when you place the order.
If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20°C/-80°C. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
and FAQs
Protein FAQs
Storage Condition Store at -20°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Data

Function Catalyzes the phosphorylation of the ketose sugar fructose to fructose-1-phosphate.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Data indicate metabolic enzymes NAD kinase and ketohexokinase as candidate metabolic gene targets, and the chromatin remodeling protein INO80C as a tumor suppressor in KRAS(MUT) colorectal tumor xenograft. PMID: 28954733
  2. Angelica archangelica, Garcinia mangostana, Petroselinum crispum, and Scutellaria baicalensis were the top four botanical candidiates identified with inhibitory activity against ketohexokinase-C. PMID: 27322374
  3. compared with normal hepatocytes, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells markedly reduce the rate of fructose metabolism and the level of reactive oxygen species, as a result of a c-Myc-dependent and heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein (hnRNP) H1- and H2-mediated switch from expression of the high-activity fructokinase (KHK)-C to the low-activity KHK-A isoform. PMID: 27088854
  4. myocardial hypoxia actuates fructose metabolism in human and mouse models of pathological cardiac hypertrophy through hypoxia-inducible factor 1alpha (HIF1alpha) activation of SF3B1 and SF3B1-mediated splice switching of KHK-A to KHK-C PMID: 26083752
  5. These studies identify fructokinase as a novel mediator of diabetic nephropathy and document a novel role for endogenous fructose production, or fructoneogenesis, in driving renal disease. PMID: 24876114
  6. This study determined if single nucleotide polymorphisms in genes involved in fructose transport,SLC2A2 and SLC2A5 and metabolism, etohexokinase affect inter-individual variability in metabolic phenotypes. PMID: 23341889
  7. In human hepatocytes uric acid up-regulates KHK expression thus leading to the amplification of the lipogenic effects of fructose. PMID: 23112875
  8. ketohexokinase-A serves an unknown physiologic function that remains intact in essential fructosuria. PMID: 12941785
  9. The expression of ketohexokinase is diminished in human clear cell type of renal cell carcinoma PMID: 16372272
  10. Ketohexokinase-dependent metabolism of fructose induces proinflammatory mediators in proximal tubular cells. PMID: 19158351
  11. The structure of the KHK-A ternary complex revealed an active site with fructose & the ATP analogue in positions ready for phosphorylation. The effects of the pathogenic mutations Gly40Arg & Ala43Thr have been modelled in the context of the KHK structure. PMID: 19237742
