Medical Definition of Phosphohexokinase

1. An enzyme that catalyses the conversion of a nucleotide triphosphate and a sugar phosphate to a nucleotide diphosphate and a sugar diphosphate. D-fructose 6-phosphate, d-tagatose 6-phosphate, and sedoheptulose 7-phosphate can act as acceptors; ATP, utp, ctp, and itp can act as donors. A deficiency of this enzyme is the cause of glycogen storage disease type vii. Chemical name: ATP:D-fructose-6-phosphate 6-phosphotransferase Registry number: EC 2.7.1.11 (12 Dec 1998)
