Summaries for AK5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for AK5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the adenylate kinase family, which is involved in regulating the adenine nucleotide composition within a cell by catalyzing the reversible transfer of phosphate groups among adenine nucleotides. This member is related to the UMP/CMP kinase of several species. It is located in the cytosol and expressed exclusively in brain. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for AK5 Gene

AK5 (Adenylate Kinase 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with AK5 include Anterograde Amnesia and Prosopagnosia. Among its related pathways are Pyrimidine metabolism (KEGG) and G-protein signaling G-Protein alpha-i signaling cascades. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity and nucleoside kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is AK1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AK5 Gene

  • Nucleoside monophosphate (NMP) kinase that catalyzes the reversible transfer of the terminal phosphate group between nucleoside triphosphates and monophosphates. Active on AMP and dAMP with ATP as a donor. When GTP is used as phosphate donor, the enzyme phosphorylates AMP, CMP, and to a small extent dCMP. Also displays broad nucleoside diphosphate kinase activity.
