Family

Herpesvirus thymidine kinase (IPR001889)

Short name: Herpes_TK

Family relationships

None.

Description

The thymidine kinase from Herpesviridae catalyses the reaction:

ATP + THYMIDINE = ADP + THYMIDINE 5'-PHOSPHATE.

The enzyme is not subject to feedback inhibition by its product and the crystal structure of the enzyme from Human herpesvirus 1 (HHV-1) has been reported [PMID: 7552712].
