Two hexokinases were characterized in Schizosaccharomyces pombe: hexokinase 1, with a low phosphorylation coefficient on glucose (Km 8.5 mM) and hexokinase 2, a kinetically conventional hexokinase. Genes hxk1+ and hxk2+ encoding these enzymes were cloned and sequenced. Disruption of hxk1+ had no effect on growth but disruption of hxk2+ doubled the generation time in glucose. Spores carrying the double disruption hxk1+ hxk2+ did not grow on glucose or fructose after one week. Expression of hxk1+ increased strongly during growth in fructose or glycerol. Expression of hxk2+ was highest during growth in glycerol. A NADP-dependent glucose dehydrogenase was detected, but not a glucokinase.
