Question details

2. Deoxysugars are often used as inhibitors when studying the enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism. Two of the most commonly used deoxysugars are 6-deoxyglucitol and methyl 6- deoxyglucoside. A hexokinase isolated from horse muscle was strongly inhibited by the former and very weakly inhibited by the latter. Should the enzyme be classified as hexokinase-1 or hexokinase-4? Briefly justify your choice
