Accepted name: L-threonine kinase
Reaction: ATP + L-threonine = ADP + O-phospho-L-threonine

Other name(s): PduX
Systematic name: ATP:L-threonine O3-phosphotransferase
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the de novo synthesis of adenosylcobalamin. It is specific for ATP and free L-threonine. In the bacterium Salmonella enterica the activity with CTP, GTP, or UTP is 6, 11, and 3% of the activity with ATP.
