adoK (P9WID5) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
adoK, Adenosine kinase
Enzyme Classification 184.108.40.206
Also Known as ADOK_MYCTU, adoK, cbhK
Catalyzes the phosphorylation of adenosine to adenosine monophosphate (AMP) (PubMed:14594827, PubMed:16511094). Can also catalyze the phosphorylation of the adenosine analog 2-methyladenosine (methyl-Ado) to methyl-AMP, the first step in the metabolism of this compound to an active form that displays antitubercular activity. Is not active on guanosine, inosine, deoxyadenosine, cytidine, uridine, or thymidine. Prefers dGTP and GTP to ATP as phosphate donors in vitro (PubMed:14594827). Homodimer.
