  • Hydration, conformational states and kinetics of yeast hexokinase PII / 

    Bradford, Amanda. (Brock University, 2002-05-21)
    The kinetic study of the coupled enzymatic reaction involving monomeric yeast hexokinase PII (HK) and yeast glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH) yields a Michaelis constant of 0.15 ± 0.01 mM for D-glucose. At pH ...
  • The influence of water on the glucose affinity of hexokinase 

    Reid, Charles Robert. (Brock University, 1995-07-09)
    In the present thesis, the role of hydration during the glucose induced conformational change of hexokinase is investigated. This is accomplished by applying the osmotic stress technique. The osmotic stress technique ...
