Previous GeneCards Identifiers for AK7 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the adenylate kinase family of enzymes. The encoded enzyme is a phosphotransferase that catalyzes the reversible phosphorylation of adenine nucleotides. This enzyme plays a role in energy homeostasis of the cell. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Mutations in the mouse gene are associated with primary ciliary dyskinesia.

GeneCards Summary for AK7 Gene
AK7 (Adenylate Kinase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AK7 include Spermatogenic Failure 27 and Non-Syndromic Male Infertility Due To Sperm Motility Disorder. Among its related pathways are ATP/ITP metabolism and Neuropathic Pain-Signaling in Dorsal Horn Neurons. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity and nucleobase-containing compound kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is AK9.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for AK7 Gene
Nucleoside monophosphate (NMP) kinase that catalyzes the reversible transfer of the terminal phosphate group between nucleoside triphosphates and monophosphates. Has highest activity toward AMP, and weaker activity toward dAMP, CMP and dCMP. Also displays broad nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity. Involved in maintaining ciliary structure and function.
