Previous GeneCards Identifiers for NME6 Gene
Nucleoside diphosphate (NDP) kinases (EC 18.104.22.168), such as NME6, are ubiquitous enzymes that catalyze transfer of gamma-phosphates, via a phosphohistidine intermediate, between nucleoside and dioxynucleoside tri- and diphosphates (Mehus et al., 1999 [PubMed 10453732]).[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2010]
GeneCards Summary for NME6 Gene
NME6 (NME/NM23 Nucleoside Diphosphate Kinase 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are superpathway of pyrimidine deoxyribonucleotides de novo biosynthesis and Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is NME5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NME6 Gene
Major role in the synthesis of nucleoside triphosphates other than ATP. The ATP gamma phosphate is transferred to the NDP beta phosphate via a ping-pong mechanism, using a phosphorylated active-site intermediate. Inhibitor of p53-induced apoptosis.
