Gene Family: Adenylate kinases (AK)

Also known as : "Adenylic kinases", "Adenylokinases"

Adenylate kinases: Adenylate kinases are abundant phosphotransferases that catalyze the interconversion of adenine nucleotides and thus regulate the adenine nucleotide ratios in different intracellular compartments. [Source: Panayiotou et al., 2014]
