Accepted name: thymidine kinase
Reaction: ATP + thymidine = ADP + dTMP
Glossary: dTMP = thymidine 5′-phosphate
Other name(s): thymidine kinase (phosphorylating); 2′-deoxythymidine kinase; deoxythymidine kinase (phosphorylating)
Systematic name: ATP:thymidine 5′-phosphotransferase
Comments: 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 (AMP—thymidine kinase), EC (ADP—thymidine kinase) and EC (dTMP-kinase).
