| Protein Name :
Uridine-cytidine kinase 2
UniProtKB / Swiss-Prot ID : UCK2_HUMAN
Gene Name (Synonyms) :
Species : Homo sapiens (Human).
Subcellular Localization :
Protein Function : Phosphorylates uridine and cytidine to uridine monophosphate and cytidine monophosphate. Does not phosphorylate deoxyribonucleosides or purine ribonucleosides. Can use ATP or GTP as a phosphate donor. Can also phosphorylate cytidine and uridine nucleoside analogs such as 6-azauridine, 5-fluorouridine, 4- thiouridine, 5-bromouridine, N(4)-acetylcytidine, N(4)- benzoylcytidine, 5-fluorocytidine, 2-thiocytidine, 5- methylcytidine, and N(4)-anisoylcytidine.
