IUBMB Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name: hydroxylysine kinase

Reaction: GTP + 5-hydroxy-L-lysine = GDP + 5-phosphooxy-L-lysine

Other name(s): hydroxylysine kinase (phosphorylating); guanosine triphosphate:5-hydroxy-L-lysine O-phosphotransferase

Systematic name: GTP:5-hydroxy-L-lysine O-phosphotransferase

Comments: Both the natural 5-hydroxy-L-lysine and its 5-epimer act as acceptors.
