- Phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase
enzymology, a phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase (EC number|184.108.40.206) is an enzymethat catalyzes the chemical reaction
:ATP + (4-amino-2-methylpyrimidin-5-yl)methyl phosphate ADP + (4-amino-2-methylpyrimidin-5-yl)methyl diphosphate
This enzyme belongs to the family of
transferases, specifically those transferring phosphorus-containing groups ( phosphotransferases) with a phosphate group as acceptor. The systematic name of this enzyme class is ATP:(4-amino-2-methylpyrimidin-5-yl)methyl-phosphate phosphotransferase. Other names in common use include hydroxymethylpyrimidine phosphokinase, and ATP:4-amino-2-methyl-5-phosphomethylpyrimidine phosphotransferase. This enzyme participates in thiamine metabolism.
CAS registry numberfor this enzyme class is CAS registry|37278-18-5."
