Hexokinase (HK) activity was determined using a commercial kit (Jiancheng Bioengineering Institute, Nanjing, China) based on the coupled reactions of hexokinase with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase which resulted in the formation of reduced form of nicotinamide-adenine dinucleotide (NADH).

Briefly, 5 x [10.sup.5] cells were cultured and after 96 h medium was collected and incubated for 30 minutes with glucose assay buffer (1.5 mM NAD, 1 mM ATP, 1 U/ml hexokinase and 1 U/ml glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase).
Another key enzyme, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PdH), acts on the alternative pentose monophosphate pathway and is responsible for maintaining appropriate levels of NADPH in the cells (ASAI et al., 2011).
