Accepted name: viomycin kinase
Reaction: ATP + viomycin = ADP + O-phosphoviomycin
Other name(s): viomycin phosphotransferase; capreomycin phosphotransferase
Systematic name: ATP:viomycin O-phosphotransferase
Comments: Acts also on capreomycins. A serine residue in the peptide antibiotics acts as phosphate-acceptor.
