Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Domain relationships


This domain is found in a variety of carbohydrate and pyrimidine kinases. It is found in phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase (EC:, which is part of the thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP) synthesis pathway - TPP being an essential cofactor for many enzymes [PMID: 9519409]. It is also found in 2-keto-3-deoxygluconate kinase, which is a component of the Entner-Doudoroff pathway in hyperthermophilic archaea [PMID: 15869466].
