IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.7.3.8

Names

Accepted name:
ammonia kinase
Other names:
phosphoramidate-ADP-phosphotransferase
phosphoramidate-adenosine diphosphate phosphotransferase
Systematic name:
ATP:ammonia phosphotransferase

Reaction

Comments:

Has a wide specificity. In the reverse direction, N-phosphoglycine and N-phosphohistidine can also act as phosphate donors, and ADP, dADP, GDP, CDP, dTDP, dCDP, IDP and UDP can act as phosphate acceptors (in decreasing order of activity).
