Resource summary

Question Answer
Glucokinase at low [Glucose] Kept in the nucleus, bound to a regulator protein, away from any glucose
Low Glucose- Role of Fructose-6-Phosphate Keep the regulatory protein bound to glucokinase
High Glucose- Role of Fructose-6-P High levels of glucose compete with F-6-P, releasing glucokinase from the regulatory protein
High Glucose- Glucokinase Release Exits nucleus and begins glycolysis- so it only happens when blood sugar is high
