IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: 2'-deoxyadenosine kinase

Reaction: ATP + 2'-deoxyadenosine = ADP + dAMP

Other name(s): purine-deoxyribonucleoside kinase

deoxyadenosine kinase (phosphorylating) (ambiguous); purine-deoxyribonucleoside kinase (ambiguous); deoxyadenosine kinase (ambiguous); ATP:deoxyadenosine 5'-phosphotransferase (ambiguous)

Systematic name: ATP:2'-deoxyadenosine 5'-phosphotransferase

Comments: 2'-Deoxyguanosine can also act as acceptor. Possibly identical with EC deoxycytidine kinase.
