Superclasses: Reactions Classified By Conversion Type Simple Reactions Chemical Reactions
Reactions Classified By Substrate Small-Molecule Reactions

EC Number: ,

Enzymes and Genes:
thymidine kinase Inferred from experiment : tdk

In Pathway: salvage pathways of pyrimidine deoxyribonucleotides

The reaction direction shown, that is, A + B ↔ C + D versus C + D ↔ A + B, is in accordance with the Enzyme Commission system.

Most BioCyc compounds have been protonated to a reference pH value of 7.3, and some reactions have been computationally balanced for hydrogen by adding free protons. Please see the PGDB Concepts Guide for more information.

Mass balance status: Balanced.

Enzyme Commission Primary Name for thymidine kinase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms for thymidine kinase (phosphorylating), 2'-deoxythymidine kinase, deoxythymidine kinase (phosphorylating)

Enzyme Commission Primary Name for deoxynucleoside kinase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms for multispecific deoxynucleoside kinase, ms-dNK, multisubstrate deoxyribonucleoside kinase, multifunctional deoxynucleoside kinase, D. melanogaster deoxynucleoside kinase, Dm-dNK

This reaction is part of the pyrimidine salvage pathway.

Enzyme Commission Summary for
Deoxyuridine can also act as acceptor, and dGTP can act as a donor. The deoxypyrimidine kinase complex induced by Herpes simplex virus catalyses this reaction as well as those of EC (AMPthymidine kinase), EC (ADPthymidine kinase) and EC (dTMP-kinase).

Enzyme Commission Summary for
The enzyme from embryonic cells of Drosophila melanogaster differs from other deoxynucleoside kinases (EC and EC in its broad specificity for all four common deoxynucleosides.
