Deoxynucleoside kinase (IPR002624)

Short name: DCK/DGK

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This family consists of various deoxynucleoside kinases including cytidine (EC:, guanosine (EC:, adenosine (EC: and thymidine kinase (EC:, which also phosphorylates deoxyuridine and deoxycytosine. These enzymes catalyse the production of deoxynucleotide 5'-monophosphate from a deoxynucleoside, using ATP and yielding ADP in the process.
