[CUT SHORT ANS: Most of the times Hexokinase D (aka Glucokinase) is just refered to as Hexokinase (i found a lot of text in which they did this) so i will answer about Glucokinase as it is the most important hexokinase enzyme.
synthesis location :- hepatocytes (in liver). and Neuroendocrine cells of the pancreas, gut, and brain.
tissue or cell type ; hepatocytes (in liver) , Beta cells and alpha cells of the pancreatic islets, Glucose-sensitive neurons of the hypothalamus, Enterocytes of the small intestine
cell location : generally in free areas of cytoplasm (near cytoplasmic glucose, so that they can facilitate conversion of glucose into glycogen]
KNOW MORE : * please read the underlined part*
There are four isoenzymes of hexokinase which have different functions but can exist in a single species.
1.) Hexokinase I/A is found in all mammalian tissues, and is considered a "housekeeping enzyme," unaffected by most physiological, hormonal, and metabolic changes.
2. )Hexokinase II/B constitutes the principal regulated isoform in many cell types and is increased in many cancers.It is the hexokinase found in muscle and heart. Hexokinase II is also located at the mitochondria outer membrane so it can have direct access to ATP
3) Hexokinase III/C is substrate-inhibited by glucose at physiologic concentrations. Little is known about the regulatory characteristics of this isoform.
4) Hexokinase IV/D is also known as glucokinase and is described below.
Glucokinase (hexokinase D) is a monomeric cytoplasmic enzyme found in THE LIVER AND PANCREAS that serves to regulate glucose levels in these organs. Glucokinase is used in the first step of the metabolism of glucose, during this step the phosphorylation of glucose by ATP generates glucose-6-phosphate and ADP. Glucokinase is a hexokinase isoenzyme. Glucokinase's role in metabolism of glucose can be can be inhibited due to the allosteric properties of glucokinase.It also plays an important role in the regulation of glucose metabolism and because of this regulation glucokinase is a target for drug development in type 2 diabetes.
THE PREDOMINANT CELLS OF THE LIVER ARE THE HEPATOCYTES, AND GLUCOKINASE IS FOUND EXCLUSIVELY IN THESE CELLS.
Most of the glucokinase in a mammal is found in the liver, and glucokinase provides approximately 95% of the hexokinase activity in hepatocytes.
where is the hexokinase enzyme synthesized? in what tissue or cell type? what location in the...
For each description below, select the cell type or tissue type to which it refers, using the drop down menu for each. It is possible that a cell or tissue type from the list may not be used at all, or may be used more than once. choices: dendritic cell, lymphocyte, antibody, spleen, lymph node, monocyte, thymus, neutrophil, hematopoietic stem cell, erythrocyte, bone marrow and m (microfold cell). a. major cell type presenting antigen to naive helper T cells b....

What is the special name given to the connective tissue in this location? A. Classify the epithelium. B. Identify the fuzzy surface of this tissue. C. What is the main function of this type of epithelium? D. What is the special name given to the connective tissue in this location?
1) Select the cellular (and subcellular, if relevant) location for each enzyme listed below. (Cytoplasm,Inner membrane of mitochondria, outer membrane of mitochondria, Matrix of mitochondria) Phosphofructokinase: ATP synthase: Hexokinase: Pyruvate dehydrogenase: Aldolase: Citrate synthase: NADH dehydrogenase complex: 2) Based on our discussion in class, which enzyme performs the first committed step in glycolysis? ( i picked hexokinase on this and got it wrong) a. phosphofructokinase b. pyruvate kinase c. hexokinase d. cytochrome e. aldolase
9) Identification : (5 points) What is this tissue/structure: Name a location in the human body where this tissue/structure is located? Name ONE of its major functions?
the enzyme hexokinase can catalyze the following reaction: fructose + ATP -> fructose 6 phosphate + adp if the deltaG of hydrolysis of fructose 6 phosphate to fructose + Pi is -13.8 kj/mol and hydrolysis of atp to adp + pi is -30kj/mol, calculate Keq for the reaction above (R = 8.31 j mol-1 K-1, T = 298 k 3a. The enzyme hexokinase can catalyze the following reaction: Fructose + ATP → Fructose-6-phosphate + ADP If the ΔGo of hydrolysis...

Cell Biology Short Answer Question: In the absence of targeting information, what is the default location of proteins synthesized on cytosolic ribosomes? What are the general features of an N-terminal signal sequence that targets secretory proteins to the ER? What are the general features of mitochondrial matrix-targeting sequences?
What tissues/cell types contribute to a plant's ability to grow taller? Choose several tissue/ cell types and for each type you choose, explain how it contributes to a plant's ability to grow taller. (Challenge: on a separate piece of paper (to have more room) try taking every cell type and, in clear and logical steps, explain how a plant could not grow taller without this cell type).
