IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: streptomycin 6-kinase

Reaction: ATP + streptomycin = ADP + streptomycin 6-phosphate

Other name(s): streptidine kinase; SM 6-kinase; streptomycin 6-kinase (phosphorylating); streptidine kinase (phosphorylating); streptomycin 6-O-phosphotransferase; streptomycin 6-phosphotransferase

Systematic name: ATP:streptomycin 6-phosphotransferase

Comments: dATP can replace ATP; and dihydrostreptomycin, streptidine and
2-deoxystreptidine can act as acceptors.
