Saccharomyces cerevisiae (R64-1-1)
Description

Galactokinase; phosphorylates alpha-D-galactose to alpha-D-galactose-1-phosphate in the first step of galactose catabolism; expression regulated by Gal4p; human homolog GALK2 complements yeast null mutant; GAL1 has a paralog, GAL3, that arose from the whole genome duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000000224]

Location

Chromosome II: 279,021-280,607 forward strand.

R64-1-1:BK006936.2
