IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.7.1.213

Names

Accepted name:
cytidine kinase
Systematic name:
ATP:cytidine 5'-phosphotransferase

Reactions

Comments:

The enzyme, characterized from the archaeon Thermococcus kodakarensis, participates in a pathway for nucleoside degradation. The enzyme can also act on deoxycytidine and uridine, but unlike EC 2.7.1.48, uridine kinase, it is most active with cytidine.
