EC Number: 18.104.22.168
Note that this reaction equation differs from the official Enzyme Commission reaction equations for this EC number.
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 Synonyms: 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:
The enzyme from embryonic cells of Drosophila melanogaster differs from other deoxynucleoside kinases (EC 22.214.171.124 and EC 126.96.36.199) in its broad specificity for all four common deoxynucleosides.
