D-ribulokinase; carbohydrate kinase that specifically converts D-ribulose to D-ribulose 5-phosphate during pentose metabolism; null mutant accumulates D-ribulose and the precursor ribitol; proposed to function as a D-ribulose metabolic repair enzyme; member of the FGGY family of carbohydrate kinases; human homolog, FGGY, is involved in both D-ribulose and ribitol metabolism; human FGGY has been linked to both sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and bipolar disorder 1
