, an AMP-thymidine kinase
is an enzyme
the chemical reaction
- AMP + thymidine adenosine + thymidine 5'-phosphate
Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are AMP and thymidine, whereas its two products are adenosine and thymidine 5'-phosphate.
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups (phosphotransferases) with an alcohol group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is AMP:thymidine 5'-phosphotransferase. This enzyme is also called adenylate-nucleoside phosphotransferase.
