EC 2.7.1.147     
Accepted name: ADP-specific glucose/glucosamine kinase
Reaction: (1) ADP + D-glucose = AMP + D-glucose 6-phosphate
(2) ADP + D-glucosamine = AMP + D-glucosamine 6-phosphate
Other name(s): ADP-specific glucokinase; ADP-dependent glucokinase
Systematic name: ADP:D-glucose/D-glucosamine 6-phosphotransferase
Comments: Requires Mg2+. The enzyme, characterized from a number of hyperthermophilic archaeal species, is highly specific for ADP. No activity is detected when ADP is replaced by ATP, GDP, phosphoenolpyruvate, diphosphate or polyphosphate.
