NAD kinase (IPR002504)

Short name: NADK

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


Members of this family are NAD kinases EC: The enzymes catalyse the phosphorylation of NAD to NADP utilizing ATP and other nucleoside triphosphates, as well as inorganic polyphosphate, as a source of phosphorus. Such enzymes are thus designated poly(P)/ATP-NAD kinases [PMID: 11006082]. NAD kinase is one of the key enzymes regulating the cellular NADP(H) level, and therefore NADPH-dependent reductive biosynthetic pathways [PMID: 22056937].
